THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

An increase in high paid government workers

Everyone from illegal aliens to government workers to corporations have their
snouts deep in the trough of taxpayer money.

A World Gone Mad
A 9% increase in government workers earning more than $100,000.

The insane government spending goes on and on.

The 3,800 employees who earned at least $100,000 annually last year made up 10 percent of the Sacramento region's city and county workers, but ate 25 percent of payroll.

Their ranks increased by about 80, while the number of city and county workers earning less than $100,000 fell by almost 3,000, according to a Sacramento Bee review of new data from the state controller's office.

The city and county of Sacramento collectively increased the total amount paid to six-figure employees by $23 million, or 9 percent, while cutting 1,800 workers from their payrolls.

The number of county of Sacramento employees under 30 – most of them low earners – fell by 50 percent, to 900, from 2007 to 2010, according to actuarial documents from the county retirement system. During the same period, the number of workers over 30 declined by just 4 percent.

"Workers that were able to stay had higher seniority and are at the higher wage scale," said Chris Andis, a spokeswoman for the county of Sacramento.

At the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, workers did get raises, partly to offset a deal that increased workers' contributions to their pensions, sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos said.

The number of six-figure earners in the Sheriff's Department grew by 25 percent from 2009 to 2010, even though the department employed 400 fewer workers.  The Sacramento Police Department, 173 employees earned six-figures in 2010, up by 15 from the year earlier.
