The Port Authority of New York/ New Jersey is a mess...
 
Manhattan Institute Adjunct Fellow, Pulitzer Prize and Emmy award-winning journalist Judith Miller breaks down the gory details in an investigative piece published Sunday in the New York Post.
 
From the piece:  "Bloated by overtime and corrupted by their union, Port Authority cops are a giant mess the city can't clean up."
 
Working in partnership with the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research - one of the most prestigious think tanks in the world - OpenTheBooks.com is giving robust oversight to the Port Authority pay and pensions.  

 

"Overtime flows like water..."  We found that 5,380 employees earned overtime in 2014 and 100 employees actually doubled their base salaries.
