Question ground connections with ganged switches and an outlet

If I have a 4-ganged box with three light switches on one circuit breaker and an outlet on a different circuit breaker, do I connect the grounds of the switches and switch power together with the ground of the outlet. These are in a plastic box.

Yes, all grounding wires in the same box are interconnected, even if on different circuits. Not true of neutrals, of course.

I hate 4-gang boxes. Too crowded and too confusing. Are you sure you don't want to put that receptacle in another nearby box?
