I guess I’ll just let you browse through the database of City of Chicago salaries linked here and let you think what you want. Keep in mind, however, that salaries shown don’t include pensions or other benefits.
You can access other views and menus by following the directions on the database homepage linked here.
Thanks to the reader who suggested I post this. His email to me says the kind of thing that’s so common in Chicago: “My neighbor is a ‘supervisor’ and gets paid 105K a year to stand around with a clipboard and shoot the breeze.”
