Emergency responders out in the cold with no employment contracts

One of the most overlooked benefits of living in a larger city or town is the public service amenities, including those provided by first responders. While no one can deny the valuable service that these dedicated individuals provide, these workers may feel unappreciated when they are left out in the cold with no current employment contracts in force. It is not unusual for California towns to attempt to negotiate the terms of these contracts, but the providers may feel undervalued when they feel forced to provide care for residents without having a valid agreement in place.

Security guard files suit against Giants over employment dispute

The professional baseball season typically runs from early April until late October. When the season is over, it is likely that the average fan does not consider what happens to the support staff of a team.

Many California educators have found themselves caught up in these types of disputes with their local government officials.
