1 in 3 San Francisco employees earned $100,000

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
More than 1 in 3 of San Francisco's nearly 27,000 city workers earned $100,000 or more last year - a number that has been growing steadily for the past decade.

The number of city workers paid at least $100,000 in base salary totaled 6,449 last year. When such extras as overtime are included, the number jumped to 9,487 workers, nearly eight times the number from a decade ago. And that calculation doesn't include the cost of often-generous city benefits such as health care and pensions.

You'll never hear Barack Obama talk about greed in the public sector. Just a reminder, these overpaid government workers are looking for you to bailout San Francisco. That's right, you.
