Reminds me of some of the articles about OC fire fighters who make the highest paid list.  Some of those people have popped up 3-4x over the last so many years and naturally they circle the wagons and defend their own.  Loved this blurb from the article:

"Perhaps the only silver lining for the taxpayers is the fact that overtime pay can no longer be factored into pension benefits, a consequence of a 2012 pension reform bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown. It is perhaps not surprising that a dramatic increase in overtime payouts began the same year Brown signed that bill."

This is the truth

 

The Los Angeles Times found quite the opposite when it investigated overtime. In the 1996 article, the Times said most overtime hours are not connected to "fires or other emergencies. Instead, most of it goes for replacing those who are out because of vacations, holidays, injuries, training, illnesses or personal leaves."

There is a BART janitor here that made almost $300,000.

He signs up for every overtime slot, and then just chills in the closet for hours.

"Last November, a nonprofit called Transparent California reported that a BART janitor named Liang Zhao Zhang made $271,000 in a single year — over $162,000 of that in the form of overtime"

so if my math is correct, that means he made ~$109,000 AS A JANITOR?

i'm in the wrong career.

Nice! So he can probably afford a 2 bedroom apartment.

That kind of shrewdness and opportunism is needed in this country. He'd fit right in at the Trump White House.

Yeah he can probably find something to rent. To buy you need to hit $303,000 these days.

$303K is the annual income now needed to buy a median priced home in San Francisco

Couldn't he just not sleep for one night and pick up an extra shift to make up the difference?
