I work as a fire fighter seasonally for the Oregon Department of Forestry. I recieve no retirement benefits and less pay than my counterparts in the private sector. Pay step increases have been frozen and several foresters have been laid off from the department. I make less than $17,000 a year as a state employee and depend on the health care benefits that I get for 4 months out of the year. Haven't we sacrificed enough?
