Council puts brake on librarian's pay
The Waterbury Republican American - Waterbury,CT - has an Interesting Report on what The Town Council is thinking about librarian pay. They voted Monday against increasing the pay of the new Prospect librarian to $49,008 a year. The previous librarian had 15 years' experience with the town library and left at a salary of $47,123.
"Why would we give someone new to the town more money?" asked council member Patricia S. Geary. "I see it as an act of disrespect to our former librarian."
