MORE THAN A 1000 STATE EMPLOYEES MAKE 100K
Madison, Wisc…] A search of the MacIver Institute’s new transparency website reveals that 844 state employees made over $100,000 a year in salary alone in 2010.
That number jumps to 1,031 when you include overtime payments.
“As the public engages in a debate over government employee compensation, we believe it is important that it be an informed debate,” said MacIver President Brett Healy. “We are committed to keeping WIOpenGov.org Wisconsin’s premier web portal for searchable payroll and benefit data for government employees.”
The searchable 2010 State payroll data covers employees of all state agencies, totaling 37,100 employees. Not included are University of Wisconsin personnel, and employees of the legislature, judicial branch and Governor’s offices. The MacIver Institute is in the process of obtaining that data and will post on WIOpenGov.org in the coming months.
