Understanding the Metro Employee Overtime Situation

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is investigating the city's overtime pay to Metro employees.  The administration has found that about ten percent of the city's workforce earned $15,000 or more in overtime, and some employees effectively doubled their salaries.  The amount of money paid for overtime is in the millions of dollars. Some of it is scheduled, but city officials say they’re certain that overtime pay is also being abused.Todd Mundt spoke with WFPL’s Phillip Bailey and Gabe Bullard about the latest developments in the story today during Here and Now.
