Lehigh County is currently hiring 911 dispatchers at a starting salary of $42,016. That's $20.20 per hour. With shift differential and OT, it's more.
Northampton County is currently hiring 911 dispatchers at a starting annual salary of $36,355. That's $17.48 per hour.
If you can do the same job in either county, why on earth would you work at one that pays $6,000 less per year?
This is why NorCo is unable to keep 911 dispatchers ... and corrections officers ... and nurses ... and clerks.
This needs to change. Current pay is very unfair to NorCo workers.
