NYC hospital employees net massive overtime pay

Twenty New York public hospital employees made nearly $2 million in overtime in fiscal year 2013, according to the New York Post. For example, according to Health and Hospitals Corp (HHC). records, an assistant coordinating manager at the Bronx's Jacobi Hospital logged more than 2,500 hours of overtime, which comes out to nearly $100,000 in overtime, more than twice her base pay. A senior stationary engineer at Roosevelt Island's Coler-Goldwater Hospital worked 1,756 extra hours, according to the Post. An HHC spokesperson told the Post that most of the overtime was due to preparation for or response to Hurricane Sandy, and that some workers received time-and-a-half or double-time pay during that period.
