We at PublicSource believe it’s important to make the salaries of city, county and state employees easy for you to see because you, the taxpayer, provide the funds so that public employees can serve you.
Remember as you look at the salaries that though some may seem lower than private sector jobs, public employees receive generous pensions (one of the the items that often put cities and states in jeopardy regarding their budgets) and benefits.
Explore the data for cities, counties and the states on our site in the coming days and let us know if you find something that you believe we should report on further.
It’s your money.
