Miami: It’s Not the Salary, It’s the Benefits

Post on April 17, 2015 by The Victoria Law Group 0 Comments

If I were to advise young people today about career choices, I might advise them to pursue public sector jobs.  Not because of the “do-gooder” badge associated with it, not even for the unionized benefits.  No, I tell them do it for the pension and “incidentals”.  City jobs, especially in police and firefighting, were once seen as modestly paid but with good benefits. The real estate bubble helped change that.  Now, you can have a very comfortable retirement, after a relatively short public sector career.  Further, you can leave the public sector at a young enough age to get a sinecure “consulting” for your old company, double-dip, and really rake it in.  Someone once said, “wish I didn’t know now, what I didn’t know then”.  Yep, that’s about right.
