Nevada’s public employees sixth-highest paid in the nation

State and local government employees in Nevada made an average wage of $55,700 in 2008, placing the state sixth highest in the nation in terms of public worker salaries, according to a new study released today by the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.

An earlier study using 2006 data found that the state ranked eighth on average public employee pay.

Nevada also has a relatively smaller government workforce, according to the study, which compared the states using U.S. Census data. There were 41.4 state and local government employees per 1,000 residents, the lowest ratio in the 50 states and Washington, D.C.
