$7.00 per hr. It computes more like 10 and according to your post 24,000 which is almost 15. Not bad beats McDonalds and I'm sure thers a benifit package also.
It would seem that the orivate sector will continue to raise it's income level to compete with the goverment sector.
What I don't understand is why the correction unions would oppose the competion, it would seem demand would lead to even higher wages. This assumming that prisions are in the same area fighting for labor. I'm taking my first tour of a state run facility shortly guided by the warden himself. He agrees that privitazation is sthe thing of the future. This may give me more insight.
