DETROIT (WJBK) – Detroit is just a few months removed from bankruptcy. Is this a bad time for city leaders to ask for a pay raise?

Some residents got a chance to sound off Monday night.

The question of what council members have done to earn a raise, was echoed time and time again as more than 70 people took it upon themselves to be the city’s voice when it comes to them getting a raise.

Many who spoke Monday said that the timing has to be right when asking for a raise.

“You need to give this city time to get the books balanced,” said Janice Pickett, a retired city worker. “And to really situate where this money is going and what departments need it most before you want to pad your pockets.”
