    Brother Mike:

    The new OT pay for Federal Firefighters is really simple. They actually pay you true time-and-a-half after 53 hours, working one off and then one on with a RDO or Kelly day,
    for a total of 144 hours a pay period.

    As I indicated on my post, the problem now is that they lowered our hourly wage before they made that change! Our hourly wage is LESS than another equel Federal worker. A starting GS-04 Firefighter makes $7.92 an hour. A starting GS-04 Clerk makes $11 something!
    Thats fine if you live in the deep South, but not anywhere else in the country...
