HOUSTON -- Houston firefighters are "fired up" and frustrated with how the city is treating them. Now they are fighting for equal pay and a raise.
The Houston Professional Firefighters Association has launched a petition seeking pay parity. The union says they are seeking what is fair and that Houston police officers make 60% more than firefighter.
HPFA President Marty Lancton sat down with CW39's Maggie Flecknoe to talk more about their latest fight.
