Government raises outpace all others in pandemic

Big fat bag of other people's money

The Oregon Employment Department reports that the largest gain in median wage during the pandemic was the local government sector at $3.23 hour gain. Compare that to three otehr (sic) industries (transportation, utilities, warehouse) which saw a 20-cent gain.

The other services industry average gain was $3.19 per hour and the information industry average gain was $3.15 per hour.

For the State of Oregon to pass out raises during the pandemic it cost taxpayers over $200 million dollars.
