Just Look At This List of the Highest Paid Arkansas State Employees
Courtesy of the good folks at Arkansas Business, peruse this list of the most highly paid state employees in Arkansas (PDF). See? I TOLD you that you should have gone into college football coaching or university administration.
Duly noted: The list does not appear to include “double-dipper” retirees—state employees who retire and then return to work a few weeks later, thereby collecting both a salary and a pension. Individual pension amounts are shielded from public view, so those payments would not be reflected herein. At least a few of those double-dippers, we’ve seen, would easily land on a list of the most highest compensated state employees.
