Town's pay hikes, touted as equality-driven, went mostly to men


New pay hikes in the Town of Oyster Bay are drawing the ire of some workers and taxpayers in the town.

The town board approved the pay increases for dozens of town employees three weeks ago. Town Supervisor Joe Saladino says that the move was taken in part to ensure equal pay between men and women who have similar responsibilities. But a list of those who received raises shows the majority were men.

Saladino says the move was also part of an overall restructuring of the town's workforce, which he says is the lowest it's been in years.
