CALIFORNIA (CTNS) - Despite the Brown administration's edict last year to sweep out nearly all retirees from the state workforce, more than two dozen departments still use them to fill some of the highest-paying positions in government, according to state data reviewed by The Sacramento Bee.
The numbers in an internal Department of Human Resources report show a total of 75 retirees in 26 departments held "career executive assignments" in February. The positions pay the retirees from $45 per hour to $75 per hour on top of their pensions.
More than a third of those retired-annuitant executive positions were in the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
