Pay the Firefighters

Would you feel the same way if I demanded *you* give me your product and talent for free? That's what you're asking these firefighters to do. They provide a valuable service. Pay them. I'm not a public servant--I run my own business, just like you--but I pay my taxes for cops and firefighters happily, and they're union. I'm tired of public employees being bashed and belittled as thugs and leeches simply because they want to get paid a fair wage--or at all--for the valuable work they do.
