Iowa Government Worker Pay Too High

Falcon:

Readers should go to the below site to find a table explaining State of Iowa Base Pay Compared to Market Base Pay Details.  In other words what the over paid state workers get while preforming the same jobs private sector workers do.

There’s a workforce advisor position which the state pays 50% more than does the private sector while most of the 47 jobs the state workers are grossly overpaid compared to the private sector person doing the same job.  There’s also one job getting 55% and another 46%; so readers should basically read the entire article by the Public Interest Institute.

No wonder our taxes are grossly high and totally unnecessary just so state employees can live good life off the backs of Iowa’s private employees.
