CA firefighter makes $508,893

CA firefighter makes $508,893

Union negotiating, taxpayers, cagle, Aug. 26, 2013The problem of absurdly high compensation for government workers in California never seems to get better. The latest from the Orange County Register’s Watchdog:

Several California firefighters managed to triple their base salaries by working tons of overtime last year, according to competing data on city worker pay released Monday by the state controller and the California Policy Center.

The phenomenon of rocketing overtime, according to the reports, hit its apex in Richmond, where one city firefighter had base pay of $113,892 and overtime of $279,105. His total compensation in 2013, including the value of health and pension benefits: $508,893.

This information comes thanks to outgoing Controller John Chiang’s website listing all state compensation, Government Compensation in California. He just was elected the state’s treasurer.

Before that site, it would take journalists days or weeks to dig out such information — if they could find it at all. Now anyone can do it with a few mouse clicks.

More absurdly high pay, all funded by taxpayers:

The pattern was repeated statewide to varying degrees, with one local firefighter doubling his base pay with overtime. Huntington Beach Fire Captain Darren Newton had base pay of $110,866, overtime of $127,866 and total compensation (including other pay and benefits) of $361,382.

While Orange County cities have ranked high on best-paid lists in years past – former Buena Park City Manager Rick Warsinski was No. 1 in 2012, with total comp of $545,394 – they failed to crack the Top 60 this year, according to Transparent California.

Laguna Hills City Manager Bruce Channing was No. 1 in the county, with total pay and benefits worth $383,082. That put him at No. 62 statewide, out of nearly 215,000 workers.

The No. 1 spot belonged to Susan Loftus, then-city manager of San Mateo, with total comp of $567,106.

    To paraphrase Mark Twain, “Mark Twain — ‘If you don’t read TransparentCalifornia, you’re uninformed. If you read TransparentCalifornia, you’re mis-informed.’

    There are thousands of entries that don’t make sense if taken out of context, or not adequately explained.

    Take it all with a grain of salt.

    “Richmond’s leaders made a conscious decision not to close any of the city’s seven fire stations during the recession, said its city manager, Bill Lindsay, so as staffers resigned or retired, overtime went up.”

    This fireman (fire captain, actually) “is one of those guys who’s made a decision to work every shift he could get,” Banks said. (Richmond Fire Chief Michael Banks) “He’s there when he is needed.”

    Good man!!!

    Another misleading SHOCK piece by Teri sforza and the CWD nation bites and runs with it! So how many shifts did these Fire Captains work, how many Hours does that come to, I imagine to make that kind of money these guys have no families,kids,etc, and work all the time. How many or what’s the percentage of California FF ‘s that do not double their salary in overtime? Can we get the whole story!

      “absurdly high compensation for government workers in California”

      Just another Seilerism.

      The city intentionally reduced the number of firefighters. This captain was “always there when you need him”

      That doesn’t call for “absurd” insults, it calls for “thank you for your service.”

    This kind of abuse of the taxpayer is quite widespread. The City of Los Angeles has started publishing the pay for various employees (here: https://data.lacity.org/) and the number of city employees making hundreds of thousands of dollars in jobs in utilities, police, and fire departments is eye opening. I think firefighters deserve to be well treated but this is plain theft and abuse of the taxpayer in broad daylight and it needs to stop.

    Any manager who so incompetent to require hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime pay ought to lose his job, but nobody cares because it’s only taxpayer money. In a private company heads would roll over this kind of thing.

    To make matters worse, these inflated salaries are often pursued during the year just before retirement so that the pensions are based on incomes of $200-400K for the rest of their lives rather than on their actual salaries.

    Good thing they have beds at the station, so after a couple of plates of that incredible firefighter lasagna they can take a nice nap, all while on the clock of course, so THEY CAN KEEP US SAFE. IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO BE SAFE AT ALL TIMES. THAT’S HOW THIS COUNTRY GOT TO BE SO GREAT-BY EVERYONE STAYING TOTALLY SAFE ALWAYS. Personally I think there should be NO upper limit to the compensation of someone who puts their life on the line to KEEP ME SAFE. And to think, in the town I grew up in the firefighters were all VOLUNTEERS. Unbelievable!

      Bill gore,
      Sorry bill, but maybe in a small Podunk rural town the volunteer Fire dept might work. But in the new era of life and urban living the Fire Dept is NEEDED! Sorry billy boy , but nobody wants beer belly bob racing from the local bowling ally after he’s thrown back a few to help in an emergency. And billy boy , volunteer fire depts have an extreme difficult time keeping iphone with the State mandated training that is required. Yes billy, we have beds in the fire station due to the 24,48,72,96, or 120 hours we are at work at a time. Research the Fire Dept 24hr shift schedule and you will find it is the most cost effective way to run and staff a fire dept! Multiple studies nation wide have proved it and that is why it is the most predominant schedule in the fire service. Again billy, we have beds but I assure you we never really sleep well! I wish we could change the name FIRE DEPT or Firefighter because those names now days are very misleading and the fire dept does and is responsible for not only firefighting but just about everything else you can think of. I suggest you all get over the fact we work O.T because it’s never going away!!!!!!!!!!

        “Firefighters” were first to my house when I had a “heart attack like event”.

        They checked me out and assisted the ambulance paramedics when they arrived.

        I was never so happy to see a big red truck in front of my house. When seconds count, it’s good to have multiple responders, just in case. My tax money well spent.

        “The Orange County Fire Authority alone reported less than two percent of their 88,227 responses were for ‘Fire/Explosion.'”

        Two percent fighting fires, ninety eight percent being trained, responsive, and responsible. Priceless.

        AS Chief Banks said, “He’s there when he is needed.”
        ……………………………………………………….
        (Turned out it was internal bleeding in the chest cavity adjacent to, but not related to the heart. AND, those paramedics have some AWESOME painkillers.)

          You mean FF’S were the first RAGWUS feeders to arrive at your home S&Md. In my hood the FF’s let three homes burn to the ground, I helped my neighbor save his house with a garden hose. It took the FF’s 30 minutes to even start putting water on the fires, in the Navy we had to have water flowing in three minutes. A Civilian FF really does not even come close to being as effective as a Naval HT/Damage Control Tech. FF jokers are as soft as pillows for the most part, more like the French prancing around in powered wigs. 🙂

          That’s right NT. And 3 at 50 was not good enough for you

          3%@50, AKA SB400, was a fraud. It was a fraudulent scheme perpetrated by the illegal acts of CalTURDS. I have said it many times, SB400 and it’s progeny were ALL based on fraud, because CalTURDS fraudulently left off every scenario except the best case scenario, claiming the retroactive increases would “not cost a dime”. The member muni’s bought into it and everyone was gifting out 3%@50…As it turned out the WORST case scenario came true, and CaTURDS knew about a worst case scenario but hid the downside- CLASSIC FRAUD.
          All it will take is ONE member muni to challenge the legality of SB400 (and the rest of the pension hikes) in a federal court and bring it under a civil RICO complaint, and CalTURDS would lose their shirt. All those scammed retroactive pension hikes would be deemed null and void and the state would be in the black again instead of perpetual red ink…..

    $ 50,000 non taxable expense account
    $ 100,000 non taxable travel account
    $ 19,000 entertainment account

    Total: $ 569,000.

    Of course he has many other benefits, and will reap millions in speaker’s fees, book deals, etc. after he leaves the White House. After all he is the “CEO” of the largest economy/nation in the world. Given the difference in responsibility, I would say the Southern California Firefighter is doing pretty well.

    The author makes it sound like all this overtime is something extra that the taxpayers are having to fund. What is the difference, if its one guy making $500,000 or ten guys making $50,000? The amount funded by the taxpayers is the same. If one firefighter is getting so much overtime that he is not alert enough to do the job when the alarm sounds, it is the responsibility of the hiring agency to make sure that its staff is able to do the work safely.

    The difference is that 10 people will no longer be unemployed and will be able to feed themselves and their families, will not use social services, will have a sense of worth and self esteem, and will contribute far more to the economy.

          TCSRA’s AG espouses the idea that cross dressing is a civil right, Teddy’s day is now wonderfully complete.
          TCSRA, my life choices have been fantastic and in their fullness have made me very well of and happy. What I write about here and there is the thieving RAGWUS feeders system of graft being pulled off on the private sector citizens. What you fail to comprehend is that the snowball heading your way is picking up momentum with every story written. 🙂

            Donkey is still bitter about his little town of sunset beach being annexed by Huntington Beach! The days of unregulated weed shops and business practices not up to code are over. Also, the days of mooching city services from the Taxpayers of neighboring cities is gone. But the best part of Donkey living in Huntington Beach is he is surrounded by a city full of people who are BIG supporters of public safety. So much that they voted in a Property Pension Tax!!!!!!!

            There is not one thing any of these bitter DOOMERS can say about my job that would have any effect on me! Every day that I go on duty I see a new letter of thanks,card of gratitude, or smell some delicious home baked goods brought in by the wonderful people in the community in which I serve. Just one of those thank you’s trumps a lifetime of Doomer rants and rurgs! That’s why I’m able to have so much fun debunking these morons! In fact I think I’ll pick up an O.T tommorow!!!!!!!!

            Ntheoc you have not “debunked” any topic of choice on the CWD blog since I started reading posts here a few years ago. At best you have been the “Na na, na na na” clown you portray yourself to be with your writings.

            Being a typical RAGWUS feeder, the son of a major RAGWUS feeder yourself, you were raised with the “I deserve” mentality so stealing from your fellow citizens doesn’t even register on your moral compass. What I expect from you is what you put down on your posts, those of a self-centered narcissist that has no clue how wealth is generated in society. Be careful not to bite your tongue off mouthing your firehouse chant you RAGWUS feeding fool.

            Sticks and stones donk! And I EARNED and worked for my job. Listen my little coo coo sovereign citizen, why don’t you bring buy a new unwrapped toy to your local firestation and support our TOYS FOR TOTS! I think it will make you feel a little better today. Btw, when you insult and call my old man names just know you are insulting a Military war veteran and someone who served the public for 32 years! But again, you hate veterans that go on and serve in the PD or Fire Depts!.

            I am a vet ntheoc and I didn’t rig a pension and pay system to steal from my non-PS neighbor. You go on with your little tune my crooked buddy, but in the end the younger generation is going to be out for blood and you will pay the price. You see history always repeats, but you are to ignorant to understand what is waiting in the future. 🙂

            My Son works for the Feds, not some feral rat California bureaucracy ntheoc, and his pension is half of what you thieves have created.

            TCSRA, that smell is your unwashed carcass. Do something to stabilize that balance problem little parrot. 🙂

            Yah, so he gets a taxpayer funded pension after only 20years of service instead of 30!

            What would a RAGWUS feeder like you know about paying taxes? You are a lazy hose puller that spends most of your time on the clock dozing for dollars. You live in a fantasy world that is being brought to the newsrooms my little feeder. 🙂

    It amazes me what govt employees make in my little town far removed from San Francisco. The arrogance of the [employees] in the fire dept is without peer, other than corrections officers. With some plausible improvements, private capital will finance robotic security at prisons. Huge labor savings and probably add more iq to the labor pool. For those who doubt this technology driverless cars are around the corner. Of course, [employees] who work in Cal prisons will be protected from job loss.
