‘Disabled’ Double Dippers Also a Drain on Your Wallet
Jim has discussed the political double dippers at great length on his show but are you aware of another form of double-dipping in NJ that are draining residents’ pockets?
There’s a great article from New Jersey Watchdog.org regarding another group of double-dippers that have their hands in the political through.
These double-dippers are reportedly draining your wallets by collecting 2 checks from the state, one for working and one for NOT working. Yes, you read that right.
These are former and current employees of the state who at some point were deemed unable to do their jobs anymore and now are currently employed by the state in a new job.
A New Jersey Watchdog investigation found 18 state employees who double-dip $2.2 million a year – $1 million in tax-free accidental disability pay plus $1.2 million in salaries. – See more at: http://newjersey.watchdog.org/2013/09/09/njs-disabled-double-dippers/#sthash.ur5TA3PQ.dpuf
