That's right! According to recent reports, an independent commission has voted to give California officers an 18% raise. Who is this independent commission?? And how independent are they!
This means lawmakers salaries are raised from $110,880 to=- $113,097, the highest paid in the nation. New York lawmakers, the second highest paid, make $79, 500.
Does this not freak anyone else out?
The governor's salary was also raised from $175,000 to $206,500! Unknown to me, Arnold Schwarzenegger has refused his salary since he took office. I'm impressed!
Meanwhile, this state continues to run its popularity contests aka elections and run itself into the ground. Schools are barely able to educate with their budgets and police officers are leaving major cities like San Diego because pay is too low. Nice California, nice.
