Cost of Living
The City of St. Albans has a unionized police force that is coming up for a contract renewal. The police have one issue: the cost of living increases. During the past 10 years, police officers have received minimal cost of living increases, and this time they want to match what other police forces are making. They claim that their salaries are below the national level. The incoming new police hire earns a salary of $48,200. Using the websites provided in the Course Materials Recommended Resources section, prepare data and an argument on behalf of the police officers to support their position (from textbook).
This assignment will be written as a PowerPoint slide show presentation (PowerPoint Tips (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.). Approach it as if you are giving the presentation to governing board of the City of Albans. You are trying to persuade the board that the police officers need a raise. Your proposal should be:
· 8-10 power point slides

· At least two recent and credible sources in addition to the textbook must be used.
· All sources must be cited using APA formatting.
· Charts, tables, graphs, etc., may be used.
· The first slide should be a title slide.
