And yes. 100 grand almost isn't enough to LIVE on the island. Insane.

The teachers & cops are both overpaid. That's how we got in this fiasco in the first place. Playing off each other (Nassau & Suffolk) and negotiating with politicians interested in placating voting blocks instead of looking out for the public. 340 to 24, they just made a mockery of the negotiating process. You couldn't get that many cops to agree on which diner gives out the best comps, much less agree on a contract unless it was so sweet it's absurd. How much, I can't say, but 3.375% per year till 2018 based on an already over inflated salary is ABSURD. You know the old rule of 7% over 7 years your money doubles? I guess that's what those 24 guys were holding out for when they voted no.

Forget about it, paying nearly 6k a year with no kids in school. A real killer!

As suffolk nears bankruptcy due to the obscene salary increase this guy gave to the SCPD over the next five years....this is what he sees as important.

I pay 1900 for the SCPD to get rich. My friend in Florida pays 1600 for everything including a professional police force.
