Cal Fire leaders and leaders from other departments held a rally at the California State Capitol Monday to address the growing pay difference they face compared to other firefighters.

The California Department of Human Resources released a study showing a gap of about 30 to 90 percent in pay between different departments.

Cal Fire trained firefighters can make more money at a local fire station job, even as an entry-level firefighter.
