BlackStorm is a real gem of a find. I had no idea all of the things my competitors were doing to grow and they broke it down for me and came up with a strategy for my company to grow as well. Happy customer

They have done a phenomonal job with keyword research on my competitors and helping us to target their client. After only four months we have seen noticeable increase in sales. Cheer

I have to say in the past I have been burned by marketing agencies and I was very skeptical in hiring another one but I knew I had to finally do something to stay in business. I found Black Storm because a friend highly recommended them so I decided to see what they could offer and to find out if they were just another scam. After working with them for 9 months I will say they have been very kind and professional in our dealings and they have actually exceeded my expectations on lead generation. I haven't experienced anything bad with them so if you're looking for a trustworthy marketing agency then I would suggest to give them a try.

Ney York City Housing Authority Paid $106 Million Dollars in Overtime to Workers in 2014: Plumbers Received Over Half of the Money

New-York-City-Pays-Plumbers-A-Huge-Amount-Of-Money--650x321

The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) is in serious financial trouble and is facing a deficit of $77 million. However, It’s good to be a plumber for NYCHA right now. Plumbing supervisor Robert Procida earned more money in the fiscal year 2014 then NYCHA chairwoman Shola Olatoye and also surpassed than Mayor de Blasio. Procida’s base salary is $88,288 a year, but he earned another $142,425 in overtime. That is a total of $232,459 for Procida, while Olatoye earned $210,000, and De Blasio earned $225,000 in 2014.

The extra money for Procida adds up to 1,481 hours of overtime or the equivalent of an extra whopping 37 workweeks. NYCHA is in a tight spot because New York plumbing is old and needs constant maintenance and upkeep, but it is having a hard time paying plumbers what they are owed because their deficit keeps growing larger.

The increase in overtime should not be seen as a negative reflection of the workers in any way because they are there to serve the tenants who have valid needs for service. The problem NYCHA is having is getting the required workforce they need to fulfill the jobs. Plumbing supervisors are required to be on duty at all hours when services are rendered because they need to allocate resources and solve problems.

NYCHA is declining to speak about its problems with paying so much money to plumbers in overtime, but there are some possible solutions on the table. Plumbers work day shifts throughout the week, and any work done after hours or on the weekend is considered overtime. It is reported that NYCHA is trying to find employees that would be weekend only staff to help alleviate some of the cost of paying so much overtime to regular employees.

NYCHA is scheduled to sit down at the bargaining table on Tuesday. On Monday, they issued a general response to the public about the problem. “As landlords, homeowners and renters everywhere know, too often plumbing and other repairs arise as an emergency response, and for NYCHA, the real solution to the challenges of addressing these costly and emergent maintenance issues that can happen at any time is to assure that public housing has the long-term resources to make necessary, permanent and sustainable capital improvements.”
