City Payroll Search Tool Offers Hours of Depressing Fun
We checked councilmember David Yassky's salary and found that, while that he makes $112,500 a year, he also gets $1.00 an hour -- no wonder he looks so frazzled! We also learned that assemblyman Dov Hikind gets separate stipends of $79,500 and $16,500 a year, and there are four other Hikinds on the payroll -- Pinchus and Libby we know are his brother and sister-in-law, but Morris and Yonatan we're not sure about. And there are so many Rangels -- 17! -- that we stopped looking. Say, this gets less fun and more dispiriting as you go along. Why would anyone want to be a journalist?
