ATLANTA - First responders in the city of Atlanta are using billboards in their fight for a pay raise.
A sign in northwest Atlanta reads “First to respond, last to get paid.”
The sign also says the city council received a 52 percent salary increase.
A group of police, firefighters, dispatchers and civilian employees is behind the campaign.
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed offered police and firefighters a 1 percent raise last week, but the group said it wants at least 5 percent.
