Political Science Salaries in Wyoming

In Wyoming, one may hold an elected public office without fear of being discharged from his or her regular job. Under Wyoming state statutes, an employer cannot prevent any employee from becoming a candidate for elected public office. Furthermore, employers may not fire or release employees who are elected or nominated to public office, nor may they encourage the employee to refuse nomination or withdraw from public office. Take this statute into consideration when examining the earnings of Wyoming politicians, as a politician's salary in Wyoming could actually be compounded when added to the salary of his or her regular job.
