Last week, blogger Jason Hart charted the pay of Ohio teachers’ union bosses versus the rest of the state workforce.

Jason is back with a new union pay chart of the day comparing the salaries of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) employees versus private-sector workers and other government workers.

Notice anything?

Jason asks and adds: “If Ohio’s public union members hang by a thread, why do union bosses take so much for themselves? If overpaid private industry entrepreneurs and investors are the root of Ohio’s fiscal troubles, why shouldn’t Ohio taxpayers be concerned about six-figure union salaries?…For organizations solely dedicated to their members’ well-being, Ohio’s AFSCME affiliates throw money at most every leftist cause in the state. Council 8, Local 11, and Local 4 have given more than $4.5 million to Ohio Democrats since 2001. Progressive think-tanks are frequent recipients of member dues, too – in the past five years, $124,000 went to Policy Matters Ohio and $10,000 to Progress Ohio. No one should be convinced by AFSCME’s claim to the moral high ground; least of all the public employees who keep their racket in the black.”
