"Full-time rank-and-file state scientists on average earned 27% less than state engineers in 2020 wages - $83,586 compared to $114,012,"

They make $84k and are complaining? I don't care where you live, you can live quite well on that.

Grow up you useless whiney children. There are clean diapers on your basinet.

The complaint is that there are people among the scientists doing the exact same work as some of the engineers and get paid less for it.

Which is unfair regardless of how much they make.

And that's a legitimate issue but the article implies they're working for starvation wages when they're making far more than most Americans:

'One scientist working for the state of California drives for Lyft and Uber on nights, weekends and holidays to support his family in Sonoma County. Another manages the Berkeley building where he lives for extra cash.'

Fair and equal wages for equal work is a serous issue here in the US. Most Americans are underpaid but implying people making $84k+ a year are somehow impoverished is disingenuous and a slap in the face to the countless Americans that are already economically at risk or living in poverty.

It's the Bay Area, where avg rent for a 1bd apartment is more than a mortgage payment on a 3bd house in Ohio.

^ seriously.

Anyone "in my world" that earns >X, while there are homeless or hungry people counted as citizens among them. Needs to STFU on anything that tonally comes off as even remotely less than being grateful for their lifestyle/financial situaiotn.


You know what attitude is hard to find in bumper sticker wisdom these days?
Live simply so that others may simply live.
Also lot less "stick it to the Man" attitude, and way more
Thank you Mr.Man sir, can i have dollar to shill your product sir.

So you're saying that CEO Pay should be capped at $84k a year and that people who make more than that shouldn't whine about tax rates?

Quit and go work for the agencies that pay better.

Problem solved.

Also, just have Newsome mandate better pay.

Problem solved.

If he won't, he is maga.

Being paid unfairly is being paid unfairly.

If a woman were making $84k while a male counterpart were making $114k, you wouldn't tell her to stop whining and sit down. You'd acknowledge that the situation is unfairly unequitable.

Well, I hope, but this is Fark, and way too many of you white dudes still think that the wage gap is a myth, so.

Once upon a time I was an engineer for the feds and felt underpaid. I quit and got a job in the private sector and got paid lots more. Problem solved.

Thus enabling you to pay taxes to cover other underpaid engineers working for Uncle Sam.
