This year in review, originally posted October 12, 2015
My parents were wrong! Don’t be a teacher, they said. Don’t work for the government, they said. Work for a Fortune 500 company, they said. Because that’s where the good benefits and pensions are. Not so anymore! Civil servants aren’t “servants” anymore. They are a privileged class of people!
Take a look at what this recent study found…
“Federal civilian workers had an average wage of $84,153 in 2014, compared to an average in the private sector of $56,350,” according to the Cato review. “The federal advantage in overall compensation (wages plus benefits) is even greater. Federal compensation averaged $119,934 in 2014, which was 78 percent higher than the private-sector average of $67,246.”
Where’s the income equality in THOSE numbers?? Those greedy capitalists… er… I mean government workers (and unions!) Shouldn’t they be spreading the wealth? You KNOW this isn’t sustainable. The question is… when will the government employee bubble burst? In the mean time, you can expect more tax increases as YOU continue to pay more government employees 78% more than YOU make. Congratulations!
