From the article:
In 2006, the Chicago Tribune reported that Mrs. Obamas compensation at the University of Chicago Hospital, where she is a vice president for community affairs, jumped from $121,910 in 2004, just before her husband was elected to the Senate, to $316,962 in 2005, just after he took office.
That’s just a coincidence, I’m sure.
Damn, I wish my salary would triple in a year. But that’s not how it goes for the little people, only politicos and their connected spouses.
Thanks, SE Mom. I could not remember what her job was. I’m sure that, given her title, she considers herself a social worker. I have a masters plus 30 hours, and she still makes double my teacher’s salary before I retired a year ago.
Very nice. The rules are different for the connected.
How does that kind of a raise happen? 200%
I mean, what in the world would one do? Is there a President of community affairs? WTH does he do besides give her raises?
Do they teach this at the community college - or do you have to claw your way to the..the...where the heck would you claw your way to, anyways?
122k w/ a 195K raise after one year, you'd think there'd be an awful lot of qualifiied applicants scratching each other's eyeballs out for that job - I wanna hear from some of the losers - where did they fail? Was it their thesis? Did they not know what a community was? An affair?
ROTFL.....I need to know!
