Blue but not blue collar

Globalization and recession have combined over the last 20+ years to stagnate the wages of most American workers, but police salaries have continued to rise, according to this article. Even without counting overtime and benefits, police wages are higher than the median wage in every state, and more than twice the median in three states — New Jersey, California, and Nevada.

    Due to police salaries rising, these cops in these states act like the blue blood families of America and numb their noses and look down at the rest of the government workers. You hear them talking about all the things that they can buy for their families and still have enough money left over for unexpected emergency expenses and become millionaires from all the overtime they make.

    In addition, too many of them are also anti-union and anti-government considering the fact that if it wasn’t for the union, they would not be making the kind of money plus the fact that they work for the government.
