    Okay, while I think the pay is a bit high, I don't have a problem with the back pay. What does bother me though is the fact the guy made $173,000 in overtime pay in one year. Generally speaking, overtime pay is not a good thing if you are an employer, unless it is a small amount and helps you avoid the need to hire another full-time person to whom you will also need to pay benefits. But this guy's overtime pay is almost enough to hire two more full-time people. This is the kind of thing that infuriates taxpayers.

    And that's the problem with firing people. The people left do more work. And it's generally more expensive on down the road.
