Try Not to Lose It When You See the Salary of This Brand New “Diversity” Bureaucrat
If you haven’t heard enough about how we need to give people special treatment in order to make our society more diverse (‘cuz giving away handouts to make things fair totally makes sense), then get a load of the newest bureaucrat on the block who’s here to eat your lunch, or give it away to someone with another skin color.
According to the Daily Caller, the University of North Texas – a public institution – has recently appointed a new vice president of diversity who is set to receive a salary that outranks every governor in the country.
Yes, you heard that right. This new state employee, Joanne Woodard, will be taking home over $200,000 every year for carrying out her day-to-day responsibilities in the pursuit of diversity.
Education Editor of the Daily Caller Eric Owens writes:
Questionable spending decisions have plagued the University of North Texas recently. Last June, an audit ordered by then-Gov. Rick Perry of the public universities across Texas discovered that officials at North Texas had misspent $83.5 million in public funding over the course of 10 years, according to The Dallas Morning News.
The state’s auditors determined that the free-spending officials at the school spent most of the $80.6 million in tax money on improper employee benefits. Officials also inappropriately spent about $3 million on salaries.
This fall, the Texas state auditor’s office called on North Texas to refund at least $75.6 million to state coffers during the next decade, the Morning News has reported.
Doesn’t take a genius to see that paying ridiculous amounts of money to people to perform completely irrelevant jobs could be a contributing factor to the sky-high cost of college.
