Six-figure salaries

With this much overtime being paid where are the over time controls? Why aren't more officers hired?

Six-figure salaries: In 2016, some of Pa.'s highest paid employees were prison guards.

Take a look at the list of top-earning state employees in Pennsylvania, and you'll find doctors, financial officers, administrators, politicians. And a lot of corrections officers.In 2016, 66 state corrections officers amassed enough overtime and paid leave to make more than $125,676 - ranking them among the highest 1 percent of state employees, as listed by total earnings.That's according to data provided by Pennsylvania's Office of Administration.

The data includes compensation information for state employees under the governor's jurisdiction.Thirty-eight hours of overtime a week: That's how much the 10 top-earning corrections officers worked on average, according to 2015-16 data from a Legislative Budget and Finance Committee report published in January.And the highest earning corrections officer once logged over five weeks worth of hours in a two-week period during 2015, according to the report. That's the equivalent of working nearly 110 hours in a week — leaving less than 9 hours a day for sleeping and anything else off the clock.

 “We hold these truths to be self-evident,”  former vice president Biden said during a campaign event in Texas on Monday. "All men and women created by — you know, you know, the thing.”

Re: Six-figure salaries

What do you think that they should be paid?

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
