San Bernardino raises salaries in face of bankruptcy

As it claims that it cannot pay its bills or even afford its current payroll, San Bernardino claims it needs the protection of the bankruptcy court while voting to increase salaries for some employees.

The city claims that its charter forces it to raise the salaries based on a formula used for other cities.
