What Wisconsin Pays Its Public Employees

h/t www.sodahead.com


You wonder why Wisconsin is $3.6 billion in the hole.
This is the official excel DPI database of teachers wages by school district. Look up your own district !!!
The current budget repair bill would have them paying about 5.8% towards their own retirement….right now, we the taxpayer, pays 100% of their generous retirement, and most of us pay 100% of our own retirement too.
AVERAGE WAGE AND BENEFITS (remember this is for about 9 months of work)
TEACHERS:
  • Milwaukee $86,297
  • Elmbrook $91,065
  • Germantown $83,818
  • Hartland Arrwhd $90,285 (highest teacher was $122,952-lowest was $64,942)
  • Men Falls $81,099

How about some other “public servant job”? What do they make?

  • Garbageman, Mr. Nelson earned $159,258 in 2009, including $109,892 in overtime and other pay.
  • Garbageman, Greg Tatman, who earned $125,598
  • 7 Madison garbage men made over $100,000
  • 30 Madison garbage men made over $70,000
MILWAUKEE CITY BUS DRIVERS (salary only):
  • 136 Drivers made more than $70,000
  • 54 Drivers made more than $80,000
  • 18 Drivers made more than $90,000
  • 8 Drivers made more than $100,000
  • Top Driver made $117,000 (Source WTMJ)
(The average private bus driver makes $9-13 an hour (about 20,000 yr) with no pension, or healthcare.)
AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CONTINUE PAYING 100% OF THEIR GENEROUS RETIREMENT ? THEY HAVE SHUT DOWN SCHOOLS AS THEY DON’T WANT TO PAY 5.8% OF IT THEMSELVES ….REALLY?

Wisconsin sounds like the mecca of public employment.
I am outraged and surprised by such over inflated wages.

I posted the following over at NB last night:
What is it about government position holders that makes them think theirs doesn’t stink, and somehow the laws of economics and finance do not apply to them?
I mean, what makes them special?
Most of these incompetent goobers couldn’t get hired in the private sector even if the economy was booming and they showed up for the interview with a suitcase full of money.

When my husband was a public sector employee (worked for GSA in the 1980s) there was an iron-clad rule; no government employee could be engaged in partisan politics ie, campaign for or promote any political candidate or party in any way. When did that change?

We need to push to get Education back to the States and not the feds. By the public display these so called teachers have given,I might pay that much to put each and every one of them away,in a padded cell or institution or a remote island where they could never come into contact with children AGAIN!
