Replace pricey police detail with flagmen

  • Project managers overseeing Boston University Bridge repairs have an eye-popping $2 million budget – just for police details, i.e., flagmen.
  • This was needed to pay for police officers making $48 per hour and for getting paid a full shift (4 or 8 hours) when they work as little as half an hour.
  • What do flagman get paid in other states? $15 / hour!
  • We must stop overpaying for this simple task and hire workers at market rates.
