(NBC) - If you see the mayor of Deerfield Beach, Florida out on the street, you better say hello.
City maintenance worker Cassandra Moye was suspended for two days without pay for failing to greet Mayor Peggy Noland while at work earlier this week.
Moye has the unenviable job of cleaning up trash and restrooms for $12.33 a hour, a job she was suspended from for failure to pay homage to the mayor while she spoke with Moye's boss.
"I didn't speak to the mayor and so my supervisor suspended me for two days," Moye said.
"She is the Mayor, but I don't know her personally and I didn't think it was right for me to interrupt them, so I just kept about my work."
Moye's supervisor, George Edmunds issued Moye a memo stating Moye was being suspended because "the disrespectful attitude you displayed to the Mayor was unacceptable."
