Wage freeze extended in Nassau


Nassau County’s Financial Control Board has voted to extend a three-year wage freeze for county workers.

According to Newsday, the Control Board has determined that there’s only one way for the freeze to be lifted.  County Executive Ed Mangano would have to use nearly 130-million dollars in new revenue to cover raises.  That money could reportedly come from speed camera fines, mortgage recording fees and sales taxes.
