An idea from the sports world: Salary caps for government employees

Yesterday I blogged about the ignominy that one-third of Chicago municipal employees collected more than $100,000 in pay in 2014.

While I was writing that entry, the Chicago Blackhawks were playing the Edmonton Oilers. The National Hockey League has a hard salary cap. Which brings me back to city workers, and more generally, public employees.

Why not institute a salary cap for government employees? And why not throw term limits into the mix too?
