The only group that's flourishing in this economy.
The Michigan Civil Service Commission’s website boasts: "Invest your talent with the state of Michigan. The rewards are enormous."

The average combined cost of salary and benefits for a state worker jumped to $104,067 in 2011-12, increasing from $97,883 in 2010-11.
