You may have seen the latest outrageous government revelation: The Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs is looking for someone to handle the Interior Department’s Facebook page. What might the going rate be for a Facebook Updater? $115,000/year! Yowza!
We can’t quite top that, but closer to home, we do have METRO’s blogger (er, Communications Weblog Specialist), who four years ago was making a measly $76,000 a year. Since it’s government work, she probably gets regular raises, and no doubt, the NEW METRO’s George Greanias would tell local taxpayers that with her grueling work load, she’s worth every penny.
