    shocked2 Stockton cop earns $100K in Overtime!!!

    This is INSANE! The damn State is broke and this guy can make $100,000 in overtime!?! How do we STOP this?

    STOCKTON, CA - A Stockton police sergeant earned nearly a quarter million dollars in 2009, placing fourth among city employees on a newly-released salary list.
    Sgt. Jan Goodnight's base salary was actually less than $100,000, but after earning overtime of more than $100,000 , her total gross income was higher than $222,000.
    "That's certainly a lot of money. I'm more surprised at the time she'd need to accumulate that. The amount of time she put in is pretty amazing," said Stockton police spokesman Pete Smith.
    Smith said Goodnight's overtime compensation came from state grants for various traffic enforcement operations. He also said Goodnight took assignments that other police sergeants turned down.
    "She gave up a lot of free time in days off to come back and work overtime," said Smith.
    The salary list of city of Stockton employees included 434 people earning more than $100,000 in 2009. The structure of government salaries earned plenty of criticism among shoppers at Stockton's Lincoln Center.
    "I think one of the big problems we have is salaries for government and city employees. They're so out of touch. We're paying for them when we can't make it ourselves. I don't like it at all," said Rick Braley.
    "The average pay (for government employees) is 20 percent higher than the average pay for someone in the private sector. There's an issue there," said Roger Vermulm.

    At least you can be relatively sure that cop is not taking bribes to let speeders or crooks off

    She worked the hours, she deserves to be paid for them.

    OT is time and half per hour.

    Why do you doubt she worked the hours?

    Isn't this remark kind of silly? I mean, there isn't even a privately owned police force that we can compare wages against...How is there "an issue"?

    I was engaged to one for 2 years. I hung around with all of her fellow employees for even longer, along with other police from other municipalities. I know what they do. Although this is a very extreme case of it.

    I thought it was the backbone of Capitalism to get compensated for work you do.

    Yay un-provable character assassination!

    Is ALL your knowledge about EVERYTHING derived from the various women you've asked to marry you?

    You have no idea how much she worked.

    Someone works hard and gets paid for it - the good old American work ethic - and all you can do is dump on her for it?

    The average government employee is more highly trained and skilled, doing a more difficult job, than the average private sector employee.
