  When employees are injured on the job, they ere entitled to certain benefits including medical care, lost wages, permanent impairment, disfigurement, and permanent disability.  Unfortunately Workers’ Compensation is a very complicated, fast-paced, and technical – your claim and benefits can be closed, limited, or lost without your knowledge or permission.

First of all Pamela Madison making almost making 250 grand is a joke. i mean bertha really. As far as Att.Coffey making the most-she is well worth it. And Joanie-(if a may) tell Lieberman your the County Att. not her.


But we have to layoff teachers, firefighters, and cops!?!?!


As near as I can tell all of these weasels are grossly over paid and should be prosecuted for theft.  These 36 bureaucrats are paying themselves over $6,000,000 and they all recommend the pay of each other.

If we can't get these jobs done for half of this amount, I would be amazed.  After all, none of theses snakes ever breaks a sweat, endangers themselves, is ever fired, or takes the slightest risk in anyway.

Trash in suits.
