New Jersey gov't ‘temps’ collecting six-figure pay

With an income exceeding $225,000 last year, Cathy Coyle is the most expensive part-time temp in New Jersey state government.

The Department of Education paid Coyle $151,862 last year as a "special services" employee. The retired Jersey City school executive also collects a $73,765 annual pension from the state.

Coyle is not alone. The state agency's Special Services Unit Q has become a haven for double-dippers who game the pension system with the knowledge of the Christie Administration.

A New Jersey Watchdog investigation found:

* Two-thirds of the top 60 Unit Q special services workers collect state pensions.

* Those 40 employees collected roughly $5.9 million last year -- nearly $2.9 million in state pay, plus almost $3 million from retirement checks.

* Thirty-eight of the double-dippers have six-figure incomes. Five receive more than $200,000 a year.
