Newport isn't a state beach therefore the tab is picked up by the city. Our lifeguards are well worth it since they are the best in the country. 200K may be a tad steep but if you ever need to be saved by a lifeguard I hope you're in Newport Beach, CA

Lifeguards in Newport Beach, California are earning over $200,000 per year in compensation, they can retire at age 50, and in many cases only "work" four days per week. I say "work" because I live here and see what work these guys do whenever I go to the beach. Are taxpayers getting a fair deal when these public employee unions control the amount of money these lifeguards are earning in salary and pensions? Find out as Inside Edition checks out how they spend some of their time on the clock.
