Newspaper to Publish Teacher/Public Employee Compensation

The Bay Area Newsgroup (publisher of the Contra Costa Times, Oakland Tribune and San Jose Mercury News) will be publishing an online database that will access compensation data for all public employees in California, including teachers.

This is not illegal, but it is intended to be provocative, particularly in this climate of public employee bashing. In recent attacks on public employees, critics have said we are overpaid, which is simply not true. When making honest comparisons, where public and private sector employees have the same job title, experience and level of education, public employees make LESS than public sector workers.
