The federal government pays high wages. A terrific article lists 16 really outrageous job classifications, pay scales, and deals. Here, I list eight of them.
#1 Nearly 500,000 federal employees now make at least $100,000 a year.
#3 If you can believe it, there are 77,000 federal workers that make more than the governors of their own states do.
#4 In 2010, the federal government spent $33,387 on the hair care needs of U.S. Senators.
#5 In 2010, U.S. Senators pulled $72,370 out of the “Senate Restaurant Fund”.
#6 In 2010, U.S. Senators took $166,673 out of something called the “Senate Gift Shop Revolving Fund”.
#7 In 2010, an average of $4,005,900 of U.S. taxpayer money was spent on “personal” and “office” expenses per Senator.
#8 Cooks working for the Bureau of Prisons make an average of $66,225 a year.
