NorthJersey.com does a good job outlining the burden North Bergen County will face due to just one incident of the unused sick time payout issue. Today’s example is State Senator Nicholas Sacco, who also serves as assistant schoool superintendent and is Principal of Horace Mann and Lincoln High School.
“If he were to step down today as the assistant school superintendent in North Bergen, his 445 unused sick days would be worth $331,970.
The parting check is so large that each North Bergen property owner would have to come up with $26.68 to cover the bill, among the highest payouts in state history.”
It is obviously unsustainable, and more out of sync with the private sector than ever.
