James Hohman, assistant director of fiscal policy, is cited in the Lansing State Journal and by WZZM-TV13 in Grand Rapids about data showing state employees in Michigan having higher average compensation than their peers in other states.

“I would hope they have a conversation about this,” Hohman said. This is primarily why state government costs more every year.”

As Michigan Capitol Confidential has reported, the average total compensation for state workers in Michigan now exceeds $100,000 annually.

Taxpayers could save $5.7 billion a year if the benefits paid to government employees in Michigan were brought into balance with those paid to private-sector workers.
