WTF! I am an engineer with 25 years of experience in my industry and I don’t make as much as most on that list. I dare say their job isn’t HALF as skilled as mine!!!
If you got paid for short period of time, then it shows up on the report. Do you really think that you are going to get an ANNUAL SALARY of "$7,286"???? - use your head!
I only PUBLISHED the FACTS!
I am not interested in PROPAGANDA - for either side!
If you want to look at ALL THE DATA and extrapolate different conclusions - then make some effort to dig into the link that I provided.
I wonder how many of these people have invested the time, scope of responsibility, and hardship in their careers as our senior military officers.
Our schools employ ‘resource officers’...wonder what they do, and how much they are paid?
Uhhh, these aren't "corporations". (hint, hint, "private" enterprise).
These are "public" employees, just in case you need a little help here.
...and, guess what? That means, that the "tax-payer" is one of the "shareholders"! Ya get the picture now???
Data I have looked at shows the teachers are about 1/3rd of the cost to educate kids.
Bureaucrats, buses, and buildings account for 2/3rd of the cost to educate kids.
Best you get them to let you restart your thread so that we can target those people getting $7500 Fur Shur.
The Pioneer Press (MN)released a comprehensive, easy to use database :
listing the salary and other employment data regarding thousands of Minnesota public servants. This searchable database is exactly the kind of tool watchdogs and other interested citizens need to educate not only ourselves but our neighbors with respect just how large and uncontrollable government has become. It’s about time the major newspapers did something valuable to contribute to the public discourse regarding the size and scope of government.
One of the shortcomings of the database is that it doesn’t cover city government, but this is still a helpful tool.
(The most recent data is from 2008.)
A sampling of two of the big spenders:
Anoka County has 54 employees who make more than $100,000 in salary, to go along with gold-plated benefits.
Steve Novak, chief lobbyist makes nearly $134,000.
The Anoka County Sherrif’s Office alone has 10 employees making more than $100,000.
is it really necessary to pay a cop $100,000?
Is it necessary to pay the guy who runs the recycling operation $101,000?
The County’s “application services manager” makes $100,000.
The “director of income maintenance” makes $110,000.
Does the parks and recreation director need $116,000?
The district has 56 employees who make more than $100,000 per year.
The superintendent leads the way at $155,000.
Many of the bureaucrats in the $100,000 grand club are assistant principles. Save some money and eliminate their jobs. Sound far fetched? Just last week, the Wall Street Journal ran an article noting that many of America’s most successful companies are eliminating “assistant” executive positions, finding that they offer little value.
With big salaries, Cadillac health plans and defined-benefit retirements, no wonder we’re in trouble. It’s easy to see that government is fast approaching a day of fiscal reckoning, just like the airlines, the auto makers, and other old-line industries experienced.
Government’s labor cost structure is unsustainable, even with big, job-killing tax hikes. Just take a look at California if you want an example of governmental collapse. Even with big tax hikes, major cuts and accounting gimmicks, that state is facing a budget deficit that may equal fully over 1/3 of the total budget.
Recession or not, we have government institutions who are spending money faster than taxpayer ability to pay. At some point Atlas WILL shrug.
I’d be willing to bet that 99% of those Admin making 6 figure incomes are also retired teachers drawing a pension on TOP of the 6 figure income!
That is how the work the system in Michigan.
And befor you get too indignant with us dum private secktor werkers, kepe in mind tat techers only werk about nin munths out of da yer. i think 50k for 9 months is purdy gud koin. But then im jes a noizy privat sekter werker, wat the hek do i no.
The median (half greater, half smaller) is $110 000
Give me a few minutes, I'll figure it out for teachers.
As always, please let me know through FreepMail if you want off my ping list.
>>Teacher contracts are based on around 190 day school year. Vast majority of teachers take classes all summer long to keep abreast of requirements to state improvements in education.<<
Are you saying that teachers do not work when they are out for the summer?? Do they pay for the classes to “keep abreast” during the summer out of their own pockets??
Thanks in advance for setting me stright with your reply.
Average fringe benefits $25 750
The original data set says average, so I assume they are referring to the mean, rather than the median.
Well Hell !!
7%, I say a 30% reduction is in order ...
Scan that list and keep in mind the dearth of classroom teachers. The vast majority are administrative types.
The unemployed look on the situation and are not amused.
