It's Payday for the Summer Jobs Program

It's payroll day for the summer jobs program. That takes on an ominous tone these days, as the program has stumbled its way through a difficult season and getting paid has not been a guarantee. Though the city's own internal investigation, released this week, also shows that some people were overpaid or paid even though they didn't work at all.

The result has been a more than $30 million budget overrun.

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty plans a news conference this morning to update taxpayers on the state of the payroll. Watch the Wire for the latest.
