A business-sponsored study released today contends that Ohio public employees are better paid than comparable private sector workers by 31%.
The study from the Ohio Business Roundtable, “Public vs. Private Sector Compensation in Ohio,” essentially defends the new state collective bargaining law that is facing repeal election in November.
Andrew Biggs, the study’s author, said he found that even if Senate Bill 5, the new collective bargaining law, were implemented in full, Ohio public sector workers still would have a better overall compensation than private-sector workers.
