Description

"Boston firefighters became increasingly injury prone in recent years and reported career-ending, on-the-job injuries at more than three times the rate of comparably sized cities. They often remained on the city payroll, on injured leave while taxpayers paid their full salaries, for months - and in some cases, several years - while retirement officials with strong union ties processed their disability retirement claims"
