Miami Herald finally reports on City of Miami Salaries


The Miami Herald has finally picked up on the story about City of Miami employee salaries. It is amazing that it took so long as these figures were leaked back in mid-July and the blog world has been talking about it ever since. What I find incomprehensible is that the average salary of a City of Miami employee is roughly $106,000, in comparison to the average City of Miami resident which is under $30,000. We are one of the poorest cities in the country (we compete every year for being in the bottom three, along with Detroit and El Paso). How is it that our City employees’ salaries have been permitted to skyrocket without any outcry? The Miami Herald should be reporting on this every single day — and the fact that they don’t is evidence as to why newspapers are a dying breed.
