Dim Bulb: Aug. 24, 2008

Although the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed legislation to regulate city worker overtime costs, it seems it will have minimal effect in curtailing the $71 million problem. The legislation, which went into effect this month, says a city worker can not earn more than 30 percent of their salary in overtime. With some employees raking in more than double their salaries in OT, the legislation seems needed. However, it does not cap department OT spending, just per-employee spending, so there is little incentive to reduce OT spending during the multiyear budget crisis.General OpinionOpinion
