Police Officers Annual Average Salary

This info provided by www.ehow.com

Despite the relatively low starting pay for police officers, the potential for earning substantially more while working as part of the police force does exist. The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that the median salary for all police officers was $53,540 per year in 2010. Those with several years of experience in the field will generally make salaries in excess of this figure. The upper 25 percent of all police officers made more than $69,070, while the upper 10 percent made more than $83,510.

Unions wield tremendous power and can bully private sector companies or governments from any effort of lowering the debt.  Unions can totally refuse to renegotiate their current contracts and really play the bully game. The companies or government either give them what they want, or they automatically pull out the “threat of strike knife” the union negotiators always carry in their pocket. The union negotiators are more than willing to use that “knife” and bring a company or a government to a grinding halt by actually striking.  Companies and government almost always end up having to bow down to the will of the union.  The unions get increased pay and better benefits; both of which are counterproductive to lowering debt.

The source of the information below comes directly from The Blaze and Hotair:

The NLRB (National Labor Relations Board) sued Boeing for begin to build a manufacturing plant in South Carolina. The NLRB made allegations that the aircraft maker illegally shifted work from union plants in Washington State to a new non-union factory in South Carolina. Conservatives argue that NLRB and the Obama administration are trying to tell Boeing how to run its business, and are an ally of organized labor to the point that “whatever labor wants, labor gets.” The NLRB’s complaint against Boeing argues that the company decided to build a plant in South Carolina ­— a right-to-work state — to retaliate for labor strikes at its existing facilities in Washington State.”

Maria Bartiromo asking Pelosi, “For starters, do you think it‘s right that Boeing has to close down that plant in South Carolina because it’s non-union?” Pelosi’s response? “Yes.” She then quickly added: “I don’t know if they could close it down, I would hope that they would make it union.” When pressed, she got defensive: “You asked me what I thought, and I told you what I thought.”

Basically, if Pelosi really believes what she’s saying, the NLRB should have the authority to shut down private-sector plants simply for not being unionized.

Lachlan Markay of the Heritage Foundation pointed out that “workers at the South Carolina plant in question voted resoundingly (199-68) to decertify their union two years ago.” We have come far from the legitimate exercise of government in this and many other areas.  It’s time to demand a return of government to its proper boundaries, and perhaps eliminating altogether those agencies that have arrogated the power to impose their preferred social prescriptions through the abuse of agency authority.  That would include the NLRB, the EPA, and a number of other federal entities.

RICHARD TRUMKA, ONE OF THE BIGGEST UNION BULLIES WHO SPENDS TIME AT THE WHITE HOUSE WITH THE UNION PROTECTOR

Recently a ballot measure, called “Issue 2,” represented a referendum on a law already passed by the Ohio legislature and signed by Republican Gov. John Kasich on March 31.  Once the law was passed, labor unions mounted a drive for signatures to challenge the law by referendum. Implementation of the law had been put on hold pending the outcome of the votes.

The law required public employees to contribute toward their health and pension benefits on a scale similar to private-sector workers, while allowing collective bargaining over wages to continue. It required that pay be based partly on performance and it allowed layoffs to be based on factors beyond seniority.

The measure also contained a controversial ban on public-employee unions collecting “fair share” dues from employees who benefit from unions bargaining without joining the union. Where supporters cite the principle of worker rights, critics see a political effort to bust the political power of unions.

The vote came as states and localities nationwide were wrestling with tight budgets, and as some other states have moved to curb union bargaining power. A “no” vote on the law would provide a big boost to organized labor, with a win that could help energize its union ranks nationwide. It sent a signal that unions can win some key battles, although they have failed so far to overturn a similar law in Wisconsin.

“NO” got the majority vote on “Issue 2” overturning law. Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, one of the largest US unions, said “Ohio sent a message to every politician out there: go in and make war on your employees rather than make jobs with your employees, and you do so at your own peril.”

To summarize my opinion:

Unions care about one thing and one thing only; getting themselves more. They don’t care that the company or government is in dire need of lowering expenses due to debt. All unions care about is “give us more and to hell with everything and everyone else.”  And since unions are in bed with the Democrat party when negotiations take place no one represents the tax payer.  It is solely the Democrats and the Union leaders who negotiate and  huge funds  in return for Union campaign financing for Democrats.  The tax payer loses every time.

Unions are no different from the mobster gangs that prey on neighborhood businesses. Mobster gangs make companies pay them, so they will be “protected.” Mobster gangs are trying to “help” the companies by offering their protection. The protection they are offering is protection from that same mobster gang destroying the business. The neighborhood business is held hostage by the mobster gang and almost always has to bow down to the will of the mobster gang. They will seek to destroy your business. Mobster gangs care about one thing and one thing only, “give us more and to hell with everything and everyone else.” Do you see any similarity?

The need for unions to stop employer’s abusing employees and driving children to work like slaves is as outdated as the single shot, muzzle-loading rifle. Plenty of laws now exist to prevent employer abuse and protecting children. It is time for the mobster gang unions to either be disbanded or private sector companies need more control over the use union workers. If unions are here to stay, then union pay and benefits need adjusting to equal those received by the non-union workers in the private sector. If people are so blind they can’t see union pay and benefits have gotten ridiculously high and out of control, they are stupidly clueless about how to deal with budget over spending issues and the need to get them under control without raising taxes on everyone!

    At this point in time it is either them or us that has to go.

The absolute outrage of Boeing (a private sector business) being sued for wanting to build a plant in South Carolina (Right To Work State) is a perfect example. Just yesterday in NY City, the “wall street protester’s that had set up a “town” in a public park was removed by the police due to they were in violation of a law. A radical judge ordered the protester’s be allowed to resume their “madness” and could return to the park. I hope we do have a revolution in the 2012 elections and Obama (along with all his union supporter’s and his socialistic friends that are up for re-election) get thrown into the street!

      I was totally shocked when I found out teachers pay while doing my research! I knew all their benefits were provided to them free via our “tax dollars”, but I had no idea they made that much money (which is also funded by our tax dollars). I have seen the same in my area with regard to how poor our educational system is K-12. In keeping with the “No Student Left Behind” requirement of schools being graded on their performance of educating our children, we have two High Schools that have never met the requirement for a passing grade. But, the union’s still want more pay for those teachers and better benefits. I was not joking when I wrote “give us more and to hell with everything and everyone else” about union’s and their employees. Thanks for your great input Donna!

      You sure got that right. We only get sociialist BS out of these teachers we’ve got in some of these schools and all the kids are being taught on how to overthrow the US government and how to bring it down to socialism and communism. It’s disgusting what they teach in these schools. Homosexual diversity, rewritten history, if they teach history at all. Most of the kids come out of high school unable to do math or spelling. Then they go onto a college and can’t name one single person in the government except maybe the president and they vote. I say down with 18 yr olds voting.

        Left wing socialism has completely overrun our educational system and all the teachers now shove their anti-US theology down the throats of our children for at least twelve years. So after twelve years of brainwashing by socialist and communist teacher’s, it is no suprise to me how screwed up our kids are today when they graduate high school. So pep brings up a great point and I agree the age for voting should be moved up to 21 yrs old. You can’t legally drink alcohol until the age of 21 (because gov say’s that is when they are mature enough to make good decisions), but they are allowed to vote for President at eighteen.? What makes them think they are mature enough to vote for the highest office in our country at 18, but no drinking till 21??? And of course, they are mature enough to be handed a gun and sent to some foreign land to possibly die in a war we shouldn’t even be in. Am I making any sense here or am I alone on this?????

  3. Hi Dave,

    Good post. Over the summer our local phone company went on strike for only two weeks. It seems that after the first two weeks the union would have to start giving money to the strikers. The union did not get anything they wanted and the strikers lost two weeks pay.

    I wonder if the way unions are spending so much money getting dumbocrats elected and to get more benefits for themselves if they could in fact be able to go out on strike for a long time.

    If more employers called there bluff, strikes could be very short.

      Hey Dogged,

      Thanks for the compliment. That is a great example about your local phone company and I agree with you 100%! I would never bow down to a strike! Unions always use that as their first option during negotiations and I would tell them to go straight to hell as soon as the word “strike” came out of their mouth! The negotiations would be over. I would take the chance to see how long the “union employees” were willing to go without a paycheck. And when then finally came crawling back (due to past due bills) to really want and negotiate, my first option during the negotiations would be to tell them, “hell no, you will not get back pay for the days you were on strike.” I am all with you that companies should take on the unions and stop always being their “whipping boys”.

  5. Good post Dave. The days of needing Unions is waaay past it’s time like you stated.

    I remember reading an article last year (American Thinker I believe) where the average American Auto Worker was making $125K when benefits are factored in. Plus, it took 3 workers to finance one UAW retiree. WTF! No wonder a pick-up costs $50K.

    It is absurd.

    We regular earners pay for this albatross at every level. Eventually the milk cow dries up. We are at that point now.

    Further, I read recently, that 2/3 of every municipalities’ budget goes into schools. That is ridiculous. The kids get dumber and dumber by the decade and the teachers earn more but any attempt to actually teach the kids critical thinking is replaced with some bullshit studies class where they are taught to feel guilty of America’s successes.

    There’s no easy way to fix this mess short of giving liberals lobotomies.

    The key to a greater America lies with the youth. They need to be taught American exceptionalism at a young age. Who will teach them? The teachers and the parents are the problem. I’m not holding my breath on this remedy.

    The present youth are a lost cause, they are stupid, and ya can’t fix stupid. How do you train a kid to be curious, ambitious, thrifty, brave, and honorable when every education model is opposite those values?

    When I contemplate where we have fallen from and look at where we are at now I come to the conclusion that we are… screwed.

      I am glad that you appreciate my directness. Subtleties have never been my strong point as I find it a waste of time. I learned as a child that the shortest path to truth is always a straight line.

      Your points are spot on. I am revolted that American symbolism and tradition are now rejected and considered proper PC so as not to offend anyone. WTF!!!!!!!!! This is America. The most benevolent kick ass country on the face of the earth. When any dirtbag country suffers a disaster, and they dial 9-1-1, it is answered in spades.

      Recently I was asked to give several consecutive speeches to 10th graders regarding “America and why it is great” by a local principal since she knew that I had a particularly pro-American outlook on things. I created an outline for review and submitted it for comment thinking that I may have left something out. My mistake.

      Long story short… the school Nazis cut much of my subject matter due to non-PC crap. My response – “you’re shitting me, no wonder the kids are morons, you teach them to be that way”.

      They don’t want the kids to know the truth. They want them to believe that the USA was formed by the Africans, Chinese, and American Indians and that Anglos were just spectators that took credit for everything. Kinda like liberals now but I digress.

      This country will never pull out of the mess that we are in until, and not before, we accept that this nation of immigrants built this country with the ingenuity, blood, and sweat of the best and brightest of Europeans. The rest were just interlopers hoping for a better life after most of the heavy lifting was already done. Kinda like liberals.

      Look at Africa now. The Arab lands, the whole Middle East and most of Asia. What shitholes they are and they had a head start on us by hundreds if not thousands of years.

      That’s what they need to be teaching our kids. Is it arrogant? Maybe, but it is still the truth.

      Sorry for the rant but this PC shit really ticks me off.

As a youngster taking American History, I was completely brainwashed that we had went to Africa and “stole” all the black people away from their families and homes. It wasn’t until I brought the subject up with my dad, several years later, that he informed that the leaders of “tribe’s” SOLD a lot of those black people to the white people to use as slaves! I do not defend nor believe in slavery for any person. But, if you are going to tell me about American history in a public school (funded by our tax dollars), then tell me the whole farkin’ truth! You are dead on about the school Nazis cutting out the truth due to non-PC crap and that is what the teacher’s fill our kids heads with every single day!

        You’re comparison of the US, Arab lands, the Middle East and most of Asia is a great point! In just barely over two hundred year’s, the US became the most powerful, richest and best place to live in the world. ONLY in just two hundred years! The other places you mentioned are much, much, much older than the US are still trying to find their ass with their heads stuck between their leg’s!

        You are 100% correct in writing “that this nation of immigrants built this country with the ingenuity, blood, and sweat of the best and brightest of Europeans.” They came from screwed up countries and had first hand knowledge of how suppressed they were and knew what needed to be changed to create a great country. Their ingenuity, blood and sweat paved the way for the new immigrants to come here illegally and be given all they need without doing a damn thing to earn it. The US is now a “welfare granny” country!

        Also, I never have and never will apologize to the American Indians for the growth and prosperity our forefather’s provided to this country! We had a fight and they lost; tough shit! If we’d lost, we would still be living in tepee’s. wearing animal skin and hoping we didn’t starve to death in the winter. AND…that brings up another PC bullshit that really ticks me off and is a total illusion. WTF is up now with the term Native American’s specifically designed for the In Indians to make them feel better?? I am a Native American and I’m white as chalk. The proper word they are skipping around is “aborigines” and I am pretty damn sure they are all dead now. Then or course we have the “African American’s…etc! I am very proud to be just an American, when I could now claim, I am a “English Irish American”. Why are these different groups ashamed to be called EXACTLY what they are, if they were born here…AMERICAN’S!! This PC bullshit could have me rant all day long!

    Exactly right.Let’s not be too hard on the unions.(sarcasm) I mean they are not the only ones who benefit from the same basic principle – create problems and get more money for it. Government agencies and congress in general are well versed in that technique. Incidentally, schools themselves follow a similar strategy, causing more problems or failure to accomplish the objective usually results in more money. Even worse, what gets me is when they discuss the solutions to education, which is plagued with problems. Imagine a united group of engineers with such a dysfunctional system. At least in that case they would expect the engineers could come up with a solution to the problems. Expecting teachers to fix education problems. Nah, can’t do that. That requires a bureaucrat and politician.

      “AFL-CIO Chief Financial Officer Richard Trumka increased his yearly salary by nearly $74,00 from $165,000 to $238,975 in the last four years. That amounts to a 44 percent salary increase. In addition, Trumka will also get an AFL-CIO pension equal to 60 percent of his top pay. As the chief financial officer, Richard Trumka allowed the Federations net assets to shrink from $66 million on July 1, 2000 to a negative of $2.3 million by June 30, 2008. Furthermore, the AFL-CIO liabilities, as of June 30, 2008, was more than $90.7 million, and that was before the multimillions it spent during the 2008 election campaign. In the 14 years that the Sweeney-Trumka team has led the AFL-CIO, union membership in the nations workforce has dropped from 14.9 percent to the present 12.4 percent or less. What was Trumka doing while the AFL-CIO was drowning in red ink? .”

      Richard Trumka was filling his own wallet, while the AFL-CIO was drowning in red ink! Trumka is a radical leftist that always shoots his mouth off about how he is looking out for the “little guy.” I believe the information gathered from The Labor Educator illustrates exactly who Richard Trumka is looking out for!

Those type drastic underhanded maneuvers are why I believe more and more that proposals being made in the state congress that are forcing the will of the few on the many “innocent” should have to go to ballot for the people of that state to vote. If this abusive power is granted to the state congress in our constitution, then my opinion is the writers of the constitution got this one wrong! Congress has way too much power and power leads to corruption.

      Congress is suppose to protect the majority people of their state from having the minority force stupid shit like this on them. Man, am I pissed off! Democrats and unions…may they burn in hell!!! I saw where this law was passed in 2006 (I think), but the current House has passed an amendment to kill this law…it is hung up in the senate now. We don’t have wonder where Michigan’s 16 electoral votes will go in the 2012 Presidential Election!

      Thanks for that info Dogged…I was clueless. Apparently the voter’s of Michigan must be a bit clueless also putting those idiots in office that passed that law!

      That is a horrible story about families with disabled children having to pay union dues. WTH? Wow! What a bunch of corruption going on there! And that ticks me to no end.

        Yes, this is the most despicable thing anyone could do. It’s not bad enough that you have a child that has to taken care of 24/7 the state and the F king union want to take money from you for doing nothing.

        These people should all file for unemployment as they can’t go out and get a job.

        I read somewhere that when the dumbocrats want more votes they simply make more people poor. That’s exactly what president nitwit is doing. There are more poor people now then when he took office.

  11. @ Dogged: This was implemented under our FORMER Gov. With absolutely NO public input. The idiot Granholm put this little turdbomb in to payoff the SEIU here in Michiruit. Snyder has YET to come out and oppose this idiocy. We’ve been giving him an earful over it. Hopefully,our idiots in the state legislature will get sick of the outrage,and eliminate this horrendous bill.

      Hey clyde,

      I just saw your post while finishing up responding to Dogged about this issue. I did read where your state house has passed a bill to kill this terrible abuse of power, but it is now being held up in your house senate. Give em’ hell clyde! Your house of representatives heard you all, but apparently your state senate is a bit deaf! Best of luck getting this stupid ass law off your all’s books!

    • Clyde,

      Thanks for explaining that one. So SEIU had their hand in that one? What a bunch of friggin crooks these unions are. I wish you luck with your state legislature. That is an outrage to say the least.

    • Clyde,

      I hope you all keep up the pressure on your elected officials until they do away with this law. I’m glad you were able to get your former Gov out of office.

      I hope and pray that the people of our country wake up to all the BS the dumbs pull.

  12. PBR,

    I heard Newt mention Agenda 21 too. I was glad someone finally mentioned this atrocious UN takeover. Newt was against it was he not? I recall being shocked too. I think most of those crooks up there in Congress are in on the damn program. Taking people’s land away seems to be one of the gubmint’s fun thing to do. Not for us however. It is the UN’s idea to take all our property under the guise that nobody has the right to own a damn thing. I wish someone would kick their asses out of here. Tell them to take up residence in Cuba or Venezuela, a better match for them.

  13. BTW to all. I guess you know that Governor Walker from Wisconsin is up for recall. The unions are trying to get him thrown out as governor. The same thing will be happening for Kasich in Ohio.

    Also the Occupy crowd in NYC is threatening a big blow out tomorrow starting at 7am. They are saying they are going to burn down the whole city and bomb places. Hee hee. This should be interesting.

    They should call themselves the Underground Weathermen Redux. I saw Frances Fox Piven standing right in the middle of the violent crowd where this black guy was threatening all kinds of stuff and she was just smiling so sweetly. I guess Soros has now released the big bucks and the ammo now. Can’t wait to see what happens as the average American is not going to be very cool with this anarchy.

      Isn’t this just wonderful (sarcasm)! Now we don’t have to look at video’s anymore that people are able to sneak out of the middle east to let everyone know what is going on in Dictator country’s….we get to see it live right here in the good old US! With prayer’s in my thought’s, I certainly hope this wakes up the majority of US citizen’s and they say “this is bullshit and enough is enough!” I just don’t have a lot of faith anymore that the average American even really gives a crap. I guess we will find out in the 2012 election. Great comment pep!

  14. We can thank FDR — Thug-in-Chief — for exepting organized labor from both the Sherman Act and the obligation to not infringe on individual liberty, an unalienable right from the Creator. That said, even FDR was opposed to government-employee unions.

    It is tied for the most-egregious quid-pro-quo crony-capitalism plunder in the nation.

      thedrpete,

      I could not agree with you more! I am definitely no fan of FDR as that was the beginning of the social “nanny state” movement that has only grown more and more over the years! The Sherman Act is an absolute nightmare from our past. The removal for our individual rights and the removal of God started a lot longer ago than some may be aware. Excellent point’s you bring out in your post thedrpete…thank you for stopping by and commenting! Very educational!

    Trumpka gets all the press, Hoffa deserves some…”credit” too. Of course, if you’re Jimmy Hoffa you see the election as war. That ought to tell us all we need to know about their tactics.

    • PBR,

      I think Trumka and Hoffa are from the same mold, the gangsta one. Sure, they see this whole thing as a war and they plan on making it that way. I heard Trumka say “if blood needs to run in the streets, then so be it” when talking about getting their union way.

      Hey PBR,

      Great comparison that completely flew over my head when writing this article! Trumka & good O’ Jimmy…now that is a pair made in “heave…oop’s…”hell!” The ONLY good thing that comes to mind when I think of Hoffa is how good a role Jack Nicholson played Hoffa in the 1992 film “Hoffa”! Well…Danny DeVito played a great role to as Hoffa’s friend of Bobby Ciaro (I’m a huge Jack Nicholson fan). Trumka is the PERFECT example of liberal loon’s; he got rich off the back’s of others and doesn’t want anyone else rich. He reminds me of a slave owner with the exception the black slaves had no choice to do their master’s bidding. Trumka’s slaves are just blind, sheep fools! They actual believe he cares about them.

      I’d give 10 to 1 odds that even though Hoffa disappeared in 1975 and was finally just declared legally dead in 1982 he still manages to vote Democratic in every single Presidential election! Thanks PBR!
