DEL PERRO (WZL) — On Tuesday last week, the Legislature passed two Government salary amendment bills. Both bills were introduced by recent legislative appointee Jordan Malone (P). The first bill grants overall pay raises to Emergency Medical Services workers. The new rates are as follows:

  • Trainee – $110
  • Emergency Medical Technician – $150
  • Paramedic – $170
  • Field Supervisor – $185
  • Lieutenant / Captain / Battalion Chief – $195
  • Assistant Chief / Chief – $200

The second bill increases the pay rates of higher ranking Department of Commerce and Labor employees. Senior Board Members receive a $5 increase per payment, while Commissioner pay rises by $15. The bill also reduces the number of commissioners from three to two. The new pay rates are below:

  • Trainee/Receptionist – $110
  • Junior Board Member – $160
  • Senior Board Member – $175
  • Commissioner – $200

Both bills passed the legislature and have been signed into law. All representatives but one voted in favour, with Endeavour Jackson abstaining on the vote to increase pay rates for the Department of Commerce and Labor top brass.

    Not really a pay raise, the complete opposite for any command who aren’t the Chief, actually.
