Govt Workers Nearly Twice Expensive

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported March 12  that employing a state or local government worker is 45 percent more than an equivalent worker in the private sector.

For December, employers in private industry spent an average of $29.63 per employee hour worked, while employers in the government sector — although most don’t comprehend it — spend an average of $42.89 per hour.

Government employees average 33 percent higher but their pension and retirement benefit costs are a mind-numbing 254 percent higher.
