How pay works with unions

Here’s what unions get:

The memo on “Moving Towards a More Strategic Federal Pay Comparability Policy” includes a table using 2010 data indicating that federal employees at the lower end of the pay scale are overpaid compared with private-sector employees, while those at the higher end of the scale are underpaid. Folks in the middle, at the General Schedule 8 grade level, making about $51,600 in 2010, are about on par with the private sector.

The people at the top get paid more but they don’t get the multimillion dollar salaries that they do in the private sector, while those at the bottom actually get paid a living wage. What a terrible way to run an economy.
