Firefighters in Philadelphia tell FOX 29 a rally held outside of city hall Thursday was a bit of a disappointment.
The firefighters, who have demanded new contracts from the city, claim they haven't had a pay raise in nearly four years.
Instead of the more than 100 people organizers were expecting at the Thursday rally, only about 24 actually showed up.
Still, firefighters say their message is clear - it's time to get their money.
An arbitrator granted the city's firefighters a new contract, which would have given them a three percent raise.
However, the city has appealed it, claiming it cannot afford the deal.
Not the prettiest Friday, but we're ready for a great weekend. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. After an early high in the upper sixties, temperatures fall & winds pick up out of the chillier northwest. Right now the Memorial Day Weekend looks sunny and cool with highs in the low to mid 60s on Saturday, in the 70s Sunday & Monday. Cooler temps at the shore.
