$392,000 to Be a Life Guard in Los Angeles

As government grows ever larger, it will suck all of the money out of the economy, until there is no one else to work for. On the positive side, government employees are often paid extravagantly under liberal rule:

The highest-paid Los Angeles lifeguards earn up to $392,000 annually — and dozens of others rake in more than $200,000 a year, according to an investigation by Forbes.

Seven LA County lifeguards earned more than $300,000 in taxpayer dough by tapping into overtime pay in 2019, the latest year available, Forbes found.

They must be truly excellent lifeguards, to earn that much. Or maybe not:

Many of the lifeguards who won the Medal of Valor for exhibiting bravery and saving lives were not among the county’s highest-paid.

Divorcing compensation from merit is key to the liberal agenda. How else are we going to reduce income inequality?

On the negative side, when Big Government has taxed the private sector out of existence and bloated public sector salaries are financed entirely by inflating the currency, the money will be worthless.

On a tip from Wiggins.
