Juneau Approves Wage Increase For Crossing Guards

(Juneau) Juneau Mayor Dan Wegener says an increase in wages for crossing guards to $15-per hour is well-deserved. The common council this week approved the increase that was first proposed to go up around 25-cents to $13.50-per hour. Wegener says there was consensus on the Public Safety Committee that for everything that crossing guards do to protect our youth they definitely deserve more money.  The pay raise is effective January 1.
