I found the following data on “America on line” this morning:
A typical American worker earns approximately $36,200 annually. While relatively few families, and even fewer individuals, earn over $100,000 a year, individuals employed in some professions are far more likely than others to make the coveted six-figure salary.
While it is possible to earn $100,000 annually in nearly any job, such a salary is normal in only 27 occupations. To determine America’s six-figure jobs, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the highest median annual salaries for each occupation from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These 27 occupations account for only 5.8 million of the 151 million jobs the BLS tracks. Physicians and surgeons have the highest annual median pay at more than $187,000 annually.
This made me want to delve further into the, in my opinion, outrageous sums, that our board has authorized Sandy Seddon to pay her administration staff. The top five people tally up to $800,000 plus benefits. (The CFO $200, Activities director $100,000, Facilities director (Bruno’s old job) $150,000)
That works out, if my math is correct, to $111.99 per house-hold per year just to cover those 5 pay checks. So, correct me if I am wrong but is that not about what our dues increased?
Now add to those figures the benefit package, as a senior I don’t know what younger people pay these days for health insurance and Rx coverage but I know it is not cheap, we pay that tab too folks also for their family for the ones who are married with children.
Bottom line, if our board is attempting to give you a snow job about saving money with self-management, I don’t buy it………………. Not based on that starting line-up, how about you?
