Cops and firefighters in Scranton, Pennsylvania will again receive the paychecks they’re entitled to. After Scranton Mayor Chis Doherty reduced the pay of his city’s public workers – including cops and firefighters – down to minimum wage, arguing his city can’t afford it – three public sector unions in the city took the mayor to court, challenging the pay cuts.

Now, a deal has been worked out- and Mayor Doherty has promised to restore his public workers’ pay with interest on the backlogged salaries. During a time when public workers are under assault all around the country, it’s nice to hear some good news.
