Let’s be honest: No one really likes paying their taxes. But since we have to pay them, you should know how the state spends the money.

PublicSource obtained state salary data for Pennsylvania employees for 2016. The data includes the agency an employee works for, when they were hired, their annual salary and the overtime they earned.

We received the data from the state Office of Administration. Unlike other government entities, the office would not release race and gender information tied to specific state employees. Instead, the office provided aggregate breakdowns of race and gender of its employees by department.
