This can easily be resolved by going back to the days when these clowns only met for 2 months out of the year and then they went back to work in the civilian world. The taxpayer saves a fortune and we don't end up with all of the stupid laws they like to dream up.

You brought this up before. How about if county employees who live in Chico work in Chico and so on?

Ok so we pay them on average $116,208. Plus if we add us a normal person's average full-time work schedule. 52x5=260 working days a year Less 10 holidays, less 7 vacation day = 243 working days a year. 243 working day X$170 daily expenses=$41,310.
$116,208 +$41,310=$157,518.$157,518 Div. by 1944 hours worked =$81.02778 per hour is what we are paying these jokers. And still having to pick up their tab on fuel, vehicle maintenance, vehicle leases and possible other ammentities. I say we need to clean house and stop the BS.

There must be a lot of people at the top because everyone I know who works for the county makes less than $50,000 a year and a lot make less than $30,000 a year. Some jobs pay so much less than the private sector they can't even find people stupid enough to apply for them.
Just putting it out there

Save money..make all positions voluntary services to society in local, state and federal government positions. No paychecks, no special allocated funds or benifits. You want to serve the public in political or leadership and government role do it for free. This takes any false motives out of the picture altogether of sevice and will save billions of tax dollars. Its not a "career" nor is it a "job", its an elected or appointed posiion to serve the public and their intrests and wellbeing.

When you include the lax work schedule and the perks like retirement, vacation pay and insurance you nearly have to double that wage......

And even a Cal Trans flagger can make up to a 100k per year including perks with a little overtime......

Caught in a lie!

Wednesday Apr 25, Here Is One (moron) started a thread in the Chico forum.
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/chico-ca/T7ME...
His leading post, post # 1 was a complete lie. When called on the lie, the moron provided a link in post # 7 that proves the moron lied.
www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/whd/WHD20111250.h ...

When it was pointed out to the moron that his original post was proven to be a lie by his own link provided in post # 7, the moron claimed in post # 76 that the lie was a direct “quote” from someone else and since the moron had plagiarized post # 1 it therefore wasn’t his, the morons lie.

And for a person who claims to be so smart and who claims to teach other peoples children to not know what these little things are “““““, well, he’s really pretty stupid

It’s all right here folks, the moron lied and when caught, he claimed he plagiarized someone else’s lie.
