The issue with the State of Oregon budget is not the employees benefit package, however it is the 1-3 managers to every 3.5 - 6 employees. The employees are paid an average if $40,000 salary while the managers are paid an average of $80,000 annually. In addition, the governors office is laying off State workers and hiring more managers. There is also excessive travel involved within the State of Oregon relating to the managers. I for one have always worked in the private sector and I can honestly attest that if a college educated state employee were to accept a job in private industry there salary would be increased at least 25%. The State of Oregon needs to reduce its budget by reducing the number of managers they currently have on staff. This would solve the governors budget problem. Why is this so difficult to figure out? Let's look at the real issue here!
