Contract talks and new public pension formulas made 2013 the Year of Employee Compensation on The State Worker blog, so it’s not surprising that two posts about pay for the 95,000 workers covered by SEIU Local 1000 were among our most-viewed items last year.

The 7th- and 5th-most viewed items of 2013 -- What California state workers earn: SEIU Local 1000, part 1 and part 2, respectively -- were part of a heavily-viewed series that looked at state employee pay by bargaining unit, a first for this blog since its 2008 launch. We plan to bring the series back this summer.

This is the fourth in a series of posts highlighting the most-viewed State Worker blog items of 2013.
