Poison Pero is RIGHT!

Brent Jacobsen (Newport Beach Lifeguard Management Association)

“We have negotiated very fair and very reasonable salaries in conjunction with comparable positions and other cities up and down the coast...well within the norm of other city employees.”

Jacobson's talking about the salary of California lifeguards.  I'm sure everyone finds it "reasonable" for city lifeguards to make $100-$200k...That's per year, by the way.

According to Jacobsen it's just part of being a California public employee:  "well within the norm of other city employees."

And the giant cash-suction doesn't end when these employees retiree:  "Lifeguards are able to retire with 90 percent of their salary, after only 30 years of work at as early as the age of 50." - Brian Calle

$100,000-$200,000 per year is bad enough, but how ridiculous is it for lifeguards to get $90,000-$180,000 per year during retirement?  Lets play with numbers:  If a 50 year old lifeguard lives to be 80 he will suck $2.7 million-$5.4 million out of the city...Not a bad gig if you can get it.

Just a little something to keep in mind when California and its equally money-strapped cities say they have to raise taxes to pay for teachers, police, fire, etc. (not that they don't have crazy deals, as well) or let them go.

No wonder so many Americans are fed up with public employees, and the giant suction noise they leave behind.

    Hmmm...ok lets pay them say $40,000/year so they can either live in a trailer or riverside, how are they supposed to respond to off hours emergencies if they can't afford to live in the area...what a stupid comment

    oh and p.s. LA and Huntington Beach LIfeguards make more than Newport Lifeguards...Laguna and Long Beach make the same

    Hi! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme
    or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
