(CNSNews.com) – “While other cities are slashing employee benefits, Berkeley is slated to add one more: paying for sex-change operations,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Tuesday.

The benefit, to be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, would allow employees to collect the money before the operation.
