In This Instance, Pay Government Employees More

Bill Hobbs notes that the Tennessee House's Republican Caucus is looking for a research analyst and argues that it is a mistake that the position is low paying. Hobbs is correct. A part-time legislature needs the best available and reliable permanent staff for research purposes. That it often is essentially just above an entry level position is unfortunate.

By the way, as a general rule the government would function better if it were possible to lay off 1/4 of employees and pay all of the remaining ones better so as to attract and retain higher quality employees.
