Roanoke, Va., Mayor Roy Webber interviews City Manager Arthur Owens and Superintendent of Schools Dr. E.W. Rushton at the close of a job classification study meeting regarding the committee's approval of a plan to ensure that all city employees receive at least minimum wage and that future salary raises are based on merit. Owens commends the Roanoke City Council for taking actions toward approving the plan, which he believes will increase the stability of the city's employee base while establishing a logical and sustainable system of rewards for committed employees. Rushton compares the new plan to the existing system of incentives and rewards for teaching personnel in Roanoke schools, suggesting that such a system will benefit the city by encouraging city employees to improve job performance. WSLS-TV reporter Joe Moffatt interviews Roanoke City Council member Herbert Davies, who outlines the details of the new plan.
