Are People Overpaid??

February 20, 2013

I love California……because it is the gift that keeps on giving.  In the past I have written many posts about some people’s pay, you can find some of them here, here, here, here, here, and here.  If you want more, search through my archives, there are more.

Today I read this article from the San Francisco Chronicle:

752 City Workers Paid More Than the Governor

If you don’t want to read the article, the Headline pretty much says it all.  The Governor of California is in charge of the ENTIRE STATE of California, the most you can be responsible for if you are a “CITY of San Francisco ‘worker'” is the CIty of San Francisco!!!  Can we all agree that the Governor has MORE RESPONSIBILITIES???

Governor Jerry Brown earns a salary of $173,987 per year. as an aside, considering the state of CAlifornia and it’s finances, this may be WAY TOO MUCH, considering he is in charge.  Does anyone feel that a city worker on San Francisco deserves to earn more than the Governor??

Does anyone think that it is ironic, that most of my “Overpaid” subjects come from California, New York, and Illinois…..the states with the WORST FINANCIAL SITUATIONS??

Does anyone want to wager whether these “workers” belong to a union??

The people that set these salaries need to be FIRED!!!

Are people OVERPAID, continued…

July 14, 2011

 This is a continuation of articles I have written here, here and here.  For this one, let’s go back to California…

It seems that there is another doctor, working for the corrections department.  I know, I know, you say doctors should be paid highly.  They have all that “training” and “education” and “experience”, AND they SAVE peoples lives.

What if I told you (from FoxNews and the LA Times)….

“Dr. Jeffery Rohlfing, 65, is on mail room duty…”

OR

“A California surgeon at a state prison who has not seen a patient in six years because the state is concerned about his medical skills…”

OR

“If you are ordered to bring somebody back to work, and you can’t trust them with patients, you have to find something for them to do.”

How much does he get paid, you ask??        $235,740 is his base salary.

Are you mad YET???  This “doctor” that does NO doctoring makes more than the Governor of California!!!  Not only that, but I would be willing to wager there are MANY unemployed people that could do the job he IS doing for 25% of the cost!!

 

As I have said before, This is the CRAP that has to STOP!!  I think Donald Trump says it best…..”You’re FIRED!!”

IF the state cannot remove someone that is INCOMPETENT, then the Legislature of that state needs to pass a new law.  Unless, of course they are TOOOOO busy with other MORE important things…
