California pays more than 1,400 workers in excess of $200,000

The L.A. Times reports:
More than 1,400 state employees were paid in excess of $200,000 last year, according to compensation data made public for the first time Tuesday on Controller John Chiang's website.

Of those, 790 were prison doctors, dentists or nurses. More than 300 others were psychiatrists and other medical professionals working for the Department of Mental Health.
Just a reminder, when California asks federal taxpayers for a bailout to pay these working class heroes.
