Apparently, I am in the wrong business when entry level BART (Train Service) officer get paid between $127,588 and $160,392. I worked in technology for many years and don’t make the kind of money or receive the kind of benefits these guys do. I am a big fan of police protecting us, but this seems like a lot of money, especially with the San Francisco Police Department’s starting officer salary is is about $40,000 less than this (See SF Police salaries here). These government workers also get an incredible health and pension benefits, something none of my friends in the private sector get to enjoy.
What do you think?
