Government employees make a crap ton of money...

So, there's a new book out named Debacle: Obama's War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future. Among other things it compares government salaries vs. private sector salaries. I've always known that in general, government employees not only have better benefits but just plainly make more money than private sector workers but daanng! The numbers they are reporting are ridiculous. I hope the next time Republicans want to make cuts, tax payers actually look at what the people are making before they join the union protests and go bat crazy acting like we are trying to take the last bread crumb from their cupboard.

"According to Norquist and Lott, the average private sector worker in America earns $61,000 annually in pay, pension benefits, and health care benefits. That compares to state and local government workers who make $80,000 and federal workers who bag $120,000 taxpayer dollars in pay, pension, and benefits"...

..."The cost to taxpayers over a government workers career is sizable. Norquist and Lott explain that the hiring of a single federal worker at age 25 will cost taxpayers between $2.73 million and $8 million in wages and benefits, depending on the speed with which the government worker is promoted."
