Salvation Army: No more pay for red kettle workers

CANTON, Ohio, Nov. 13, 2007 (AP): The Salvation Army in Canton says it won't pay people to be bell ringers at red kettle sites during the upcoming holiday season.

Officials say it doesn't make sense to pay people when others will volunteer. Paying ringers costs the campaign up to $50,000.

The decision isn't popular. Carol Shaw of
Massillon rang bells for the last two years at minimum wage. She planned to use the extra money to buy Christmas presents for her family. She made $1,000 last year.

The Salvation Army started paying people a few years ago because of a lack of volunteers. Officials say they expect to find the necessary people this year.
