I think Illinois is an interesting conglomerate of screwed. The problems in this state started a long time ago and no one seems willing to try and end them. I've probably said it before in this thread but the number of people who live in my county that make 100k+ working for the state is unbelievable. Keep in mind there are only 17k people in the whole county and I think there are more then 20 people making 100k plus the last time I saw the figures. That's mind boggling to me that the guy working at the DMV is making six figures. Granted he's been there 25 years and is in charge of the office now but still. Prison gaurds are making big bank here, and even bridge tenders are 100k plus. In fact there are four that make 130k plus. Absolutely mind boggling that with no education you can bring down giant bank. Trust me where we live 100k is like rap video lifestyle money.
That's the thing, though, Walker isn't coming down on those people. In fact, Walker got in trouble for handing out a job like you are describing, IIRC.
Yeah, here it is: Scott Walker Gives $81,500 Government Job to Top Donor's 26 year-old College Dropout Son
Walker is coming down on teachers that make maybe in the range of $25K to $50K, and actually provide a useful service, unlike the scumbags you are describing in IL, or this 26 year old degenerate in WI.
