The fact that State government employment is down and nobody is noticing a thing tells me its not lean enough! Government employment should be bare bones lean. In Minnesota, for every new State job at $70K including wages pension and benefits you need $70k in new state tax money. What would equal $70K in new State tax money how about 12-14 private sector jobs at $80K each! That would generate enough State tax income tax to pay for that 1 State employee!
