There has been a lot of talk recently about how "Government employees make too much money" and how the number of  government employees making over $100,000 has increased in the last couple of years.

Here's an interesting factoid.

Even though I earn 66% more in this new job than I did in my old one, my billable rate, the actual amount of money that it costs for me to work on a project that includes not only my pay, but also insurance (health and unemployment), building overhead from rent/mortgage, the overhead of support personnel, paying for vacation and sick leave, etc, etc, etc., has only increased 23 CENTS over my previous job in the private sector.

Mull that one over the next time you hear people complain that government employees make too much money.

(EDIT: For the record, I do not make over $100K)
