Previously, I have written about people (in NY, and elsewhere) that are making WAY too much money at the expense of TAXPAYERS.
This time let’s go to California.
In California, there is a Psychiatrist (from Bloomberg), working for the Corrections Department. You know JAILS, those places where guilty, convicted CRIMINALS are housed. This person was the HIGHEST paid state employee in California.
“…paid more than any other state employee in 2010…”
How much was this person, a Doctor, paid, you ask?
Also, in the report it listed the Top Ten State Employee Salaries in California were ALL above $500,000!! This did NOT include the Governor, who earned a measly $173,987 salary. Seriously?? Is anyone telling me that a jail psychiatrist’s job is MORE important or MORE difficult or has MORE responsibility then the Governor??
OR, how about some of those “lifeguards”?? In California, how much can you “earn”, being a lifeguard? From Foxnews:
“two cleared more than $200,000 in 2010, while the lowest-paid officer made more than $98,000”
You read that correctly. Two “lifeguards” earned MORE than the governor in 2010!! AND, I would be willing to bet that these two “lifeguards” did NOT save anyone in 2010, as they were only in charge of training, scheduling and managing the other lifeguards. You know the hard stuff, like:
“The fulltime guards train more than 200 seasonal lifeguards who make between $16 and $22 an hour, run a junior lifeguard program that brings in $1 million a year and oversee safety on nearly seven miles of sand.”
Oh…..ALMOST 7 WHOLE MILES OF SAND!!! That makes it different!!
This is the CRAP that has to STOP!!
Let me know what you think.
