Pay for Unions Workers

 

As compensation for churning out leftist inanity and forcing school districts into promises they cannot keep, OEA employees were paid an average of $96,182.81 from 09/01/2009 to 08/31/2010. The Ohio Education Association’s fiscal 2010 report to the Department of Labor lists 235 employees – nearly half were paid in excess of $100,000.”

Like I (Michelle Malkin) always say, people in fat-cat infested houses shouldn’t throw stones…

Ohio Average Pay, 2009

  • Private industry worker: $40,128
  • Government worker: $45,246 ($5,000 more than private industry)
  • AFSCME Council 8 employee: $57, 269 ($17,000 more than private industry)
  • AFSCME Local 11 employee: $67,625 ($27,000 more than private industry)
  • AFSCME Local 4 employee: $83,485 ($43,000 more than private industry)

Keep in mind, these characters pay themselves with money taken from the government workers they represent… and they don’t produce anything but tired class warfare propaganda.

  • JOHN J FILAK JR., STAFF REPRESENTATIVE: $107,785.00
  • ROBERT L THOMPSON, REGIONAL DIRECTOR: $107,475.00

As of publication the Department of Labor doesn’t list the 2010 report for AFSCME Local 11, which is why that trend line ends at 2009 on the chart.

 “If Ohio’s public union members hang by a thread, why do union bosses take so much for themselves? If overpaid private industry entrepreneurs and investors are the root of Ohio’s fiscal troubles, why shouldn’t Ohio taxpayers be concerned about six-figure union salaries?…For organizations solely dedicated to their members’ well-being, Ohio’s AFSCME affiliates throw money at most every leftist cause in the state. Council 8, Local 11, and Local 4 have given more than $4.5 million to Ohio Democrats since 2001. Progressive think-tanks are frequent recipients of member dues, too – in the past five years, $124,000 went to Policy Matters Ohio and $10,000 to Progress Ohio. No one should be convinced by AFSCME’s claim to the moral high ground; least of all the public employees who keep their racket in the black.”
