Pay Disparity: State Fund

At State Fund, the state-run worker’s compensation program, the top employee makes 12 times as much as the lowest paid employee. That is $252,000 vs. $21,000. The top fourteen each make over $100,000, plus benefits. The bottom fourteen combined, make one fifth as much as the top-paid fourteen.

State Fund has 278 employees. The new building housing the program, it is said, cost $37 million.

  1. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the top fourteen employees went to medical school and the bottom fourteen employees did not. In the private sector the CEO often makes over 400 times the average salary of the rest of the workers. This is okay because the invisible hand of the free market made it so.
