What is it with the rank hatred of the public by those in power?

i personally think its wrong to list names and wages. they can list wages with the position and number of years employee has been in that position. why do they have to list names. seems like such an invasion. there is a reason why wages are not to be discussed by anyone in most companies.

of course there are positions in which , even if names were not listed, people would know who was who

I disagree. Government employees are paid by the people via their taxes and the public has every right to know where their tax dollars are going. The same is true anywhere under the US flag.

Because they are public servants if they work for VI Government and our tax dollars pay their salaries. Don't want your name listed, work in private sector.

Here's a good one that I heard yesterday.
Mapp has an administrative assistant now on payroll who is a nurse and she's gets paid with our tax dollars an amount of $50 -55,000 per year to take care of his mother. Mapp has many relatives (think I heard a number close to 40 plus) on payroll who are making great salaries while not being qualified for the positions given.
Yes, I realize this is hardly surprising for someone who kept spouting about our dire financial straits and transparency in his administration.
