yer fired, is what somebody needs to say
Faced with major changes to their health insurance benefits, more than 500 Memphis police officers called in sick Wednesday for the second consecutive day to protest cuts aimed at helping buttress the city's troubled pension program in a showdown that reflects wider struggles in cash-strapped urban centers across the country.
Cuts approved by the City Council have led to protests from city workers, including police and fire staff, who say they cannot afford the changes and feel betrayed by a city they have served and protected. City leaders say public safety has not been compromised due to the so-called "Blue Flu
In Memphis, police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph said 520 officers were out on sick leave Wednesday, down from 557 the day before.
Officers began calling in sick en masse on June 30.
The police force has about 2,200-members.
About 65 firefighters also were out sick Wednesday. Officials are concerned some are taking action for the same reasons as the police officers, Memphis Fire Department Lt. Wayne Cooke said.
