Wardrobe Woes

In case you missed it, Team 5 Investigates aired a story last night about the growing cost of clothing certain public employees in the Commonwealth.

Reporter Sean Kelly sat down with Representative Brad Jones to discuss the over $44 million tab the taxpayers are picking up to clothe these employees. According to the investigation, “The majority of those purchases are tied to longstanding union contracts, while many others are not.”

In today’s economy, it is important that we focus the use of taxpayer dollars on those programs and industries that benefit the Bay State as a whole.
