In order to stop our city from going into bankruptcy like Detroit any new hires to the police and fire department should be notified that they will never be permitted to join or start a union. During the time of their employment and the present union members will no longer receive futher increases to excede the present top wage of the fire or police department. New hires should fall under the same pay grade plan as our military.
