Would you believe 100 million?
Did you know that state employees in California collectively make $1B more than minimum wage... per month! Yikes. There are 200,000 of them, the minimum wage is $6.55/hr, and a full-time worker puts in about 160 hrs per month, so a little quick math says that they averaged comfortably more than $35/hr. Huh. I guess if only they had lived somewhere other than California, they could have saved some of that for just such an occasion. Too bad.
