Clark County Government Workers, What Recession?


It appears that there is no recession for government workers in Clark County. They’ve gotten raises; as much as 15% over the past three years.

For example, county officials said members of the Service International Employees Union received average wage increases of 12.6 percent over that time. A spokesman for the SEIU, which is negotiating its contract with the county, disputed the number and said the union was doing its own analysis.

County officials have been accused of overstating wages before. This year, county officials said prosecutors had received total wage increases of 15 percent over three years. As Schoenmann noted, District Attorney David Roger complained, saying the county had grossly overstated the increases. However, an audit backed the county, saying the number was 14.6 percent.

I’m sure happy that the SEIU is doing its own analysis. We can be sure to believe that one. Because, you know the tax payers must still have something left to squeeze.
