Dave suggests that the legislature cap State employee salaries at a maximum of twice the median household income in the State of Montana. Dave says
"Setting the maximum salary at twice the median household income for the state comes out to around $85,000 for the cap. That may be seen as generous by some. One county in my Senate District had a median household income of $30,000 in 2008. Complaining that $85,000 isn’t enough probably will not play all that well in rural Montana."
What do you think of this idea?
