Here are a few numbers to keep in mind when folks complain about all those “over-paid bureaucrats” in state government.
In September of 2008, there were 78,721 state employees on the payroll, not counting university employees and teachers.
75 percent of them make below $50,000 a year. 44 percent make less than $35,000 and 26 percent earn less than $30,000 a year.
