NPRI Says State Workers Are Not Underpaid, Don’t Need Collective Bargaining

“Nevada Policy” is pushing back against a move to give state employees collective bargaining rights. Robert Fellner argues granting collective bargaining powers to Nevada state workers will increase annual spending by an estimated $500 million annually, a cost that will be passed onto taxpayers through higher taxes, reduced services or both. he also says their studies show it’s a false belief that state workers are underpaid. Their the report says average compensation for Nevada state workers ranks 10th highest nationwide on a raw, unadjusted basis, and fifth highest when accounting for the different price levels among the 50 states.
