Getting Paid

Over at Glenn Reynold's place is an excerpt from a Wall Street Journal article about spiraling government employee wages.

There was a time.....a long time ago.....when government jobs were not the best paying jobs around, but you had pretty good benefits and generally had pretty good working conditions.  If you wanted to make really good money, you went into the private sector.

Not so today.  A variety of factors [unionization trends, absence of any motive to slow wage and benefit growth, etc.] have combined over the last 40 years to reverse that situation.

And the problem just keeps getting worse.
