One in four government workers
makes $100K thanks to overtime

New York Post, by Carl Campanile

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/11/2017 1:43:16 PM

One out of every four New York City government workers pulled in pay of more than $100,000 last year — thanks largely to overtime, according to a new study. “New York City can be a hub of opportunity, and not just for aspiring Broadway stars. All sorts of city workers earn big bucks,” said Adam Andrzejewski, CEO of the government watchdog OpenTheBooks.com, which conducted the study. (Snip) Some career choices proved particularly lucrative. Of the 775 school custodians, 694 cleared $100,000 or more. And of those 694, 398 exceeded $150,000. As a result, many custodians made more than principals — who earn between $135,000

Comments:
Janitors of the world, unite! Unreasonably high pay far exceeding the salaries earned by workers in the private sector (who, unlike government workers, pay the taxes) is not "sustainable," especially when pensions are factored in. Financial collapse is inevitable and city leaders know it, but do not care because it´s someone else´s problem.

With prices as high as they are in NY, and taxes absolutely obscene, does $100k really get you that far? I work with a guy from NY who tells me he had to pay over $6k a year in property taxes, literally 10 times what I pay.

This is a beloved "hot button" story of the NY news media.

The "custodians" are not a guy with a mop and pail. A school custodian is the person in charge of the entire building´s maintenance and care, and they have a staff of workers who report to them. A single NYC school might have more than 5,000 students, so that would certainly be a large building with heavy maintenance needs.

Custodians are more accurately building managers.

No wonder the NY pension fund is going broke. Every goobermint union needs to be decertified and that includes the teacher unions. Even a gym teacher can make over $100 grand a year.

Mohammed Ali Mohammed, 20, has spent almost six years at a Salt Lake Valley juvenile detention center after pleading guilty rape, sexual assault and kidnapping charges in 2012, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. (Snip) One woman, who was attacked and raped in her own Salt Lake City home by Mohammed, who then forced her at knife point to take money out at the ATM, said she is ´terrified´ at the thought her rapist will be free

Missouri school officials said a non-white student confessed this week to scrawling a racist message on a girls’ bathroom mirror, causing unrest at a St. Louis-area high school. The controversial phrase, “White Lives Matter,” followed by the N-word was discovered on a girls’ bathroom mirror at Parkway Central High School in Chesterfield on Nov. 15. (Snip) “The use of the N-word, in the context of the message on the bathroom mirror, provoked feelings of hate, not love,” he said, a local CW affiliate reported. “As I stated last week, actions and speech which degrade an individual’s human dignity

Authorities have arrested a 19-year-old member of the MS-13 gang in connection with the stabbing death of an unidentified man whose decapitated body was found with the heart removed. Police suspect up to 10 members of the gang lured the victim out to a park in Wheaton, Md., where they stabbed him more than 100 times before burying him in a grave in the woods, the Washington Post reported. Allegedly among them, Miguel “Timido” Angel Lopez-Abrego, who authorities recently arrested in North Carolina on Nov. 11. He’s since been extradited to Maryland and has a bond review slated for Wednesday afternoon.

Alabama Women, Say No to Roy Moore

Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable. They don’t like when Northerners and liberals and people in Washington tell them who their senator should be. They don’t like when reporters from outside come down and ask questions and turn over rocks looking for what’s crawling on the underside. (Snip) The charges against Mr. Moore are not only serious; they are completely credible. If you read the original Washington Post story, you know it was rigorously reported, with great care and professionalism. Four women who did not seek out the press, who did

Gadsden, Ala. — After nearly two weeks of sexual assault allegations from several women, Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Roy Moore attempted to debunk claims from one of his accusers Beverly Young-Nelson. Moore’s campaign sent the following in a press release: Gadsden, Ala. – On Monday evening, the Moore Campaign unveiled statements from key witnesses that completely bust the story of Beverly Nelson and Gloria Allred and further reveal an unconscionable bias on the part of state and national press to hide the truth from Alabama voters who will undoubtedly see through the “fake news” and elect Judge Moore for the man that

The floundering Daily News lost $90.4 million over the last three years — including $23.7 million of red ink in the year ended Dec. 25. Revenue last year tumbled 14.2 percent, to $144.78 million, according to a regulatory filing on Monday. Paid print Monday-to-Friday circulation slipped to 182,472 in the second quarter, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. (Snip) The Daily News was able to trim its losses in 2017 by $5.3 million over 2016 only by aggressively slashing staff and other expenses. Compensation costs tumbled 16.1 percent in 2017 from the previous year. The declining circulation meant the company

Federal Way, Wash. — A vicious attack left a woman in Federal Way with broken bones in her face. It might have been motivated by her effort to help others — warning them of a man who approached her asking for directions and then began fondling himself. The victim, 35-year-old Amanda Edwards, says it started in a Safeway parking lot and ended on her walk home. (Snip) Edwards was at Safeway to buy dinner for her three kids around 6:15 Monday night. Instead – she returned home with four fractures in her face, including a crack down the roof of her mouth.

A Democratic congresswoman says she was sexually assaulted by a “prominent, historical” senator in the 1980s — and “everyone on Capitol Hill knew” that he was a harasser. “Historical figure, hand kept going up the leg, I took it off. A women member was at the table, recognized what was happening, and said, ‘switch places,´” Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell told CNN. (Snip) Dingell said it happened in her first year of marriage to Rep. John Dingell, whom she wed in 1981. But despite the 36-year time gap, Dingell said she’s still afraid to name the prominent perv.

A Department of Homeland Security official resigned Thursday after a report revealed he had made racist remarks in past radio interviews. The Rev. Jamie Johnson, director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at DHS, said in a 2008 radio show that the black community had turned “America´s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity.” (Snip) In another discussion, Johnson said President George W.

Embattled Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday said allegations that he sexually harassed women and girls won’t push him out of the race, and instead called on the GOP’s Senate leader to step down. Moore once again forcefully denied the accusations, and cut ties to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had called on Moore to step aside. “Many of you have recognized that this is an effort by Mitch McConnell and his cronies to steal this election from the people of Alabama, and they will not stand for it,” Moore told reporters. “I want to tell you

Des Moines, Iowa — As he tows a 96-square-foot house around Des Moines, Joe Stevens is overwhelmed by the intense, sometimes tearful support he receives from churches, schools and service groups for his plan to use the trendy little structures to help homeless people. But when Stevens actually tried to create a village of the homes in Iowa’s largest city, the response was far different. (Snip) In at least a dozen cases across the nation, neighbors organized to stop tiny house projects, including in Charlotte, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; San Jose, California; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Tallahassee, Florida; and Bend, Oregon.

Sen.

Despite the allegations against him, major players in the Democratic Party have defended Conyers and will not say that he should resign.

The IRS admitted wrong-doing in this stunning "apology":“The IRS admits that its treatment of Plaintiffs during the tax-exempt determination process, including screening their applications based on their names or policy positions, subjecting those applications to heightened scrutiny and inordinate delays, and demanding some Plaintiffs’ information that TIGTA determined was unnecessary to the agency’s determination of their tax-exempt status, was wrong.

"Britain’s relationship with race will change forever," screamed the headline above a Guardian column after news broke Monday of Prince Harry´s engagement to Meghan Markle, but the excitement might be premature — Markle will likely be instructed by royal advisers to hide that she is biracial and won´t likely end up doing much to improve the rocky race relations in the United Kingdom, according to two noted British scholars. “She won’t be allowed to be a black princess.

James O’Keefe is a celebrated right-wing pseudo-journalist whose job consists largely of attempting to prove various conservative conspiracy theories but, instead, accidentally disproving them. O’Keefe’s most recent fail is an attempt to help alleged child molester Roy Moore by tarnishing the Washington Post. O’Keefe recruited a fake source, who attempted to lure the Post into reporting her false accusations and “admitting” on camera that their reporting would affect the outcome of the election. The scam collapsed for a number of reasons. His fake source provided a flimsy cover story with odd details — she claimed to have only spent a
