I am writing this to let everyone know that not all state employees are paid high dollars, like alot of people seem to think they are. I am a State employee. I make $25k a year, i really dont think that is high dollars. when i get my pay check and after all deductions are taken out i make $6.74 per hour that is poverty wages. So before you start bashing all State employees I think you need to get all your facts straight.
