Not that Flint need anymore employment troubles, but today and tomorrow Flint firefighters will vote on their new contracts, says mLive.com. The City of Flint is facing budgets cuts again, how do you think this will affect the cities economy, and crime rates?

Members of the Flint firefighters union are voting today and Tuesday on a new contract as layoffs and other budget cuts loom at City Hall.

Union President Raul Garcia said 64 members voted this morning and another 74 will vote Tuesday evening on the contract, which includes a 9.9 percent cut.

The concessions do not cut wages, but would increase employee contributions to health care and retirement benefits, trim vacation hours and pull back the employee food allowance.
