Gov employees make more than private sector workers, study finds
Daily Caller – Betsi Fores – 9/28/2012
“Hard working Americans who are struggling to pay their bills, find a job, or set aside enough money for retirement are being forced to pay for extravagant state employee compensation,” Thomas A. Schatz, president of CAGW, said during a press conference Thursday.
“These employees are supposed to be public servants, not a privileged class,” he added.
When including wages and benefits including health care and pensions, state governments pay on average 6.2 percent more per hour.
The unfunded liability of public pensions is estimated between $1 to $3 trillion nation wide, according to CAGW’s study.
