Birmingham firefighters may get look at paychecks soon

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham firefighters may find out this week how much will be in their paychecks and it could be less.

Firefighters and some of their families attended last week's city council meeting to voice concerns over those proposed 20% pay cuts.

City council members will consider a plan tomorrow to cut entry level pay from $17 an hour to $13 an hour.

City leaders say firefighters have actually been overpaid for two years under the last administration.
