Chronicling civil-service life for California state workers

State worker database now includes 2012 civil service pay

RCB_20121127 WEATHER_0145.JPGThe Sacramento Bee state worker pay database has been updated and now includes 2012 civil service pay. California state worker payroll remained flat from 2011 to 2012, as the workforce shrunk slightly and overtime pay declined.

Use the database to search all civil service salaries through 2012. University salaries through 2011 are available now; check back later for 2012 salaries from the University of California and California State University systems.
