Working for Government Is a Ticket for the Good Life

Ontario’s Salary Report was issued today.
Over 33,000 employees at all levels of government earned over $100,000 in salary in 2006. This doesn’t include their many vacation days, many sick days, many personal days, or especially their gold-plated pension plans.
It seems that working for government in Ontario has become a ticket for the good life! Sadly, for the average Ontarian their income packages don’t compare.

The latest available data from StatsCan shows the average Male in Canada earns just over $40,000.
To earn over $100,000 puts a government worker in the top 2% of wage earners.
We keep hearing about the earnings gap between the rich and the poor. Who knew that the gap between rich and poor is really between government workers and the rest of us.

What's this, the politics of class envy rearing it's ugly, right-wing head?
