Who's the social parasite? Scott Fitzgerald’s $18,128 in 2011 Per Diems

His per diem alone provides a bigger income than 14% of his neighbors?

And what do they get for this? ...that's the question.


Breaking Down Scott Fitzgerald’s $18,128 in 2011 Per Diems | Wisconsin Factcheck

Any way you look at it, $18,128 goes a long way. According to this map from the New York Times, a household in non-metropolitan areas of Wisconsin (like Dodge County) with an income of $18,128 ranks in the bottom 15% of all households. Or, in other words, Big Fitz’s per diem allowances alone give him more income than 14% of his neighboring households. Talk about a broken “government handout!”

He was probably more productive, and cost less, than the average UW-Professor for that same time period.
