For the past three years, Nassau County's 7,000-plus employees have had a wage freeze imposed by NIFA (Nassau Interim Finance Authority). The wage freeze was instituted because, in recent years, Nassau County government has had a difficult time balancing its budget. Though Nassau County's sales tax revenue has increased as a result of economic activity due to the cleanup and rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy, county workers' wages have remained frozen. Do you believe the county executive should lift the wage freeze and honor previously negotiated contracts sometime in 2014?
