Proposition B is a measure on the ballot for the big election on November 6. It would call for Houston firefighters to be paid as same as Houston police officers. The mayor says voting for Prop B would put the City of Houston in a financial bind causing layoffs and possibly a cut in city services. The firefighters are saying that’s not true. They also say it's about time they're paid on par with law enforcement officers.
On the Factor from the Black Firefighters Association are former presidents Otis Jordan and Gaylon Davenport along with current president Delance Shawn. Isiah Carey also spoke with Keith Wade who is against Proposition B.
