I have written many times on this subject, here is a link that contains many , but not all, links to other articles.
For this post lets revisit New York. How much do you think a Janitor should be paid?? First, I do not want to disparage any Janitors (not mentioned in this post). I would like to point out that NO form of Higher Education (and probably any education) is required, you probably do not need to speak english, you do not need to know much math, you do not have to use a computer, you do not have to write anything besides your initials and a date, etc.
From the New York Post:
“Top 20 school scrubbers pull in 140G-plus“
$140,000+ to CLEAN UP a school!!! Are you kidding me?? I used to do Janitorial work, it was one of my first jobs. I can do that. Please hire me, I’ll do it for $100,000!!!
“As The Post reported yesterday, suspected crooked custodian Trifon Radef counts himself among the rich elite, making more than $170,000 a year. Radef is under investigation for allegedly using city workers to renovate nine of the 10 properties he owns in Queens, officials say.
But Radef wasn’t even the highest-earning “custodial engineer.”
That honor went to Queens janitor Kevin Fitzgerald, who pulled in a whopping $181,643 at PS 229 in Woodside — thanks to the supplementary work he performed at two other Queens schools, records show.
Radef and Fitzgerald were among six custodians who took home more than $150,000 last year — and among the 20 who hauled in more than $140,000, the records show.”
STOP the Madness!!! And Kevin Fitzgerald is NOT under any investigation!!!???
