|Are we paying government workers more and getting less in return?
In olden times, in many countries, the ruling class or church imposed a tithe between 10% to 20%. This was the basis for many a revolution. In Canada, the common people are heavily taxed by the new "ruling class" - government workers! According to a 2005 survey by Statistics Canada, Public Administration workers are the 4th highest paid workers in Canada earning an average annual salary of $48,700. The top earners are Utilities ($64,400), Forestry, Fishing, Mining, Oil & Gas ($56,500), Professional, Scientific & Technical Services ($49,200). What is wrong with this picture?
