Iowa's Privileged Class: State Government Employees

   

Introduction

   

 

Public Interest Institute first published an article highlighting the Pay Gap between Iowa’s private-sector workers and the state’s government workers in 1996.  Since that time, we have periodically revisited this topic, providing updates with the latest economic data on the average annual wages of private-sector and government employees.  Unfortunately, the results have remained the same throughout the years that the Institute has been publishing this information – Iowa has the largest Pay Gap in the nation.  Iowa has held that status not only since 1996, but has held the top spot among states for the largest Pay Gap between government workers and private-sector workers for 26 years.
