Emergency managers overpaid in cash-strapped community

An investigation by the Flint Journal in Michigan reveals that several state-appointed emergency managers are being paid six figure salaries. Residents of the "cash-strapped" communities question the high salaries, and many have sued the state.

"By law, the pay of Michigan’s five emergency managers — ranging from $132,000 to $250,000 — is set by the state, but the money actually is paid by the local communities they’re in charge of."
