Sad!

$16.63 an hour. Shy better than the projected/eventually (maybe, HA) national minimum wage of $15.00.

Now, lets take a rough 35% out for taxes ($12,112.80) and you are left with $22,495.20 for the rest of the year. That is truly SAD!

Still like the AMAZON on the eastern shore idea much MUCH better!!! I know many will say slave type wages, long hours...hell the number of JOBS (compared to 1 lowly Corrections Officer).

Hey?

7:42 AM Keep your day job because doing taxes is not in your future.

At that wage 20% is more in line for state and federal taxes, but if it is considered a state job I think there is a mandatory percentage that comes out for pension. 7% maybe. Then there is the healthcare premium.

You continue on your path of stupidity thinking Amazon is going to be any better and that this place is even a thought in their head. Why would such a progressive company want to come to the Ghetto? We have nothing to offer them or the talent they acquire, other than the beach. No entertainment, no nice restaurants, nothing progressive or metropolitan.

True ..left with only 22,495..but your not looking at the whole picture .. Perhaps then..after 1 year ..medical Insurance ..vision..dental ..?? Or some portion of those ...What's the dollar amount you put on that ??????....( Easily in the multiple hundreds if not thousands of dollars value ). ... Just saying ...

801 preach. What company would build a hub in a place that can't even fix it's roads? Lets build our next location in one of the highest crime per capita cities in America

No way I could work for the people in leadership there!

801. Your math/percentages/healthcare adds gets pretty close to 742's "example". Enough with the never ending negativity too.

If we all continue to be so negative we will ALWAYS live in the Ghetto!!!

But by the time you retire, long before anyone in the private sector can retire with the same years of employment, your will be making $60,000.00 a year (or much,much more) and you will get 80% of your final earnings for the rest of your early retirement life. That includes healthcare, to boot. If you look at the benefits of a county job, they are some of the best jobs around. Needless to say, they are some of the hardest jobs to get. You have to KNOW somebody to get in, then you are set for life.

8:45 AM Typical moron who thinks being honest is negative. Living with your head in the sand? My figures are correct @ around 27% total, not even close to their "guess" of 35%, their comment was nothing but blather. And you obviously didn't pass math class.

Here is another fact for you, this place WILL always be a ghetto. You think Day's fake rainbows and butterfly's make this place any less of a ghetto?

When you work at a jail or prison ...You DO Time !! Fact

Anonymous said...

If they would get rid of the corrupt employees that do work there, they might get more applicants, but no one, and I do mean no one, wants to work where you have to watch your back all the time, not because of the prisoners, but because of the employees. NO THANKS!!

People make more than $34,000 in one summer waiting tables or bartending in Ocean City. Why the hell would anyone want this miserable job?

CO said...

This is base salary, than factor in lots of overtime, and the money the inmates have family and friends give you for the drugs and other contraband snuck into the jail.
Yes, I said friends and family, this is how it is done, cuz inmates don't have cash, but they have outsiders pay for their stuff. I know how it is, cuz I used to be there.

You can have being around that garbage day in and day out. Id be fired the first time they threw urine or feces at me

Anonymous said...

Curious 1005 - if its as bad as you depict ("this place WILL always be a ghetto"), why do you still live there? What are you doing to make it better?

Anonymous said...

Not sure where you are getting those figures. If you retire after 25 years you will get a 50 percent pension that you have contributed 6% of your salary towards. The health insurance is not that much better than most employers and afterbyou retire its not as good.

I've worked t numerous correctional facilities in MD. WCDC is by far the worse run jail I've ever seen. The inmates and their families intimidate staff constantly and the inmates and their gangs basically run the place. The warden there has absolutely no custody experience and is only a politician. it's run like a counyty club and has a high high recidivism rate. The County needs to run this place lire a jail & KEEP THE POLITICS OUT. SHERIFF lEWIS NEEDS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THIS FACILITY AND MAKE IT SAFE FOR ALL!!!! Overpaid Warden with no custody experience, under paid staff, no control of inmates and basically not giving the citizens of Wicomico County the bang for their tax bucks or the safety they so rightly deserve.

This is the same county that was advertising for an IT position, that required a degree, and like 5 years experience in some obscure program, and wanted to only pay $35,xxx a year! That's job would be over $90k elsewhere, or even minimum $70k without the specialized experience!

They also want to pay a ferry boat operator $12.24 an hour for all of that responsibility and not only that, expect you to have mechanic's ability to fix the damn boat too!

This area is an absolute JOKE!

You must be high. How will you make 60k with a percent or two raise every few years? Go apply then dummy.

Anonymous said...

4:59 PM when a potential employee can make more money elsewhere, they need to go elsewhere, if they are not satisfied with salaries paid here. Be prepared upon arrival to "elsewhere" to find the grass is NOT greener.

A job is advertised on here and gets 33 comments, mainly trashing the salary - from idiots who never had intentions of applying. There others complaining believe Wicomico County is corrupt. Must be a great place to live with city and county administrators being so corrupt.

Build your locality UP, don't spend worthless time vilifying. The endless trashing only points out the kind of people who live in your area. Reading Salisbury News I find the blog and its readers want the world to believe your area is a horrible place. Makes me wonder why you are still there.

The guards are abused by inmates and they can do nothing about it because the guards have no rights.

Didn't the County Council take the raises for correctional officers out of the budget this year? We will see how many people apply for those jobs!

Anonymous said...

1247 is right. The $34,000 number was supposed to be the initial money for the training time but raises used to be given after the period was over. John Cannon and County Council got the raises removed from this year's budget so now the base number is all they get.

Amazon is NEVER coming to the E.S. Most likely area just north of DC. or Northern VA. They need a community with a technical workforce to draw from. There is nothing here at all on the shore that would attract Amazon here.
