The database includes pay information for public employee positions in cities, counties, special districts, courts and judiciary, K-12 education providers, California Community Colleges, University of California, First 5 Commissions and fairs and expos. Also included are workers paid by the Controller, including state employees, the California State University, legislators and statewide elected officials.
