According to the Buckeye Institute, the highest paid Ohio Turnpike toll collector received $103,150.00 in gross wages during 2010 (including $24,437.22 in overtime).
I wonder: How is the discounted marginal value product calculated for these toll collectors?
Oh, wait. They serve the state and thus provide an essential public good. So maybe they are being exploited by the state, even at $100K.
But it just seems like the exploited are those who pay the toll. Hmmm.
