    Yesterday was apparently “Equal Pay Day!” but only in New York City. Similar to Tax Freedom Day, the actual Equal Pay Day was back on April 4th and was described as how far into 2017 women would supposedly have to work on average to earn the same amount of money a man in the same job would have made in 2016. (If you really want to tick off anyone celebrating this event, send them to read the Wikipedia Background section on the subject, which actually pegs it pretty well.)The somewhat delayed holiday was observed in New York City in...

    Pennfield Schools had just one teacher rated ineffective out of 124 within the Calhoun County district in 2014-15. And that ineffective teachers salary of $68,921 was the third-highest salary for a teacher in the district, according to documents received in a Freedom of Information Act request and the state database of teacher salaries. Teachers in Michigan are evaluated and are given one of four ratings. Ineffective is the worst rating. That teacher, whose name is being withheld from publication, is a good example of the problems with the union-negotiated one-size-fits-all pay scale that just about every district in the state...

    Throughout the election cycle, many liberal pundits accused president-elect Donald Trump of acting like literally Hitler over his policy proposals. Now one social justice activist is comparing Trump to Hitler--because of a gesture of good faith. Following the 60 Minutes interview in which Trump said he would not accept the presidents salary, Parker Molloy, a transgender writer at Upworthy, tweeted this means Trump is taking a page literally out of Hitlers playbook:

    In his first interview as president-elect, Donald Trump pledged that he will accept as little of the presidential salary as he can get away with. I think I have to by law take $1, so Ill take $1 a year, he told CBSs Leslie Stahl. $400,000 youre giving up, she responded, as if this were some sort of public-spirited sacrifice.

He added that he would not be taking too many vacations either. Theres so much work to be done and I want to get it done for the people, he said. I want to get it...

    ...Trump swore that he would refuse his Presidential salary if elected... John F. Kennedy was the wealthiest man ever sworn in as President of the United States. He had given his congressional salary to charity, and he maintained the practice once he got to the White House. Herbert Hoover, whose net worth was estimated to be nearly $4 million in 1913, divided most of his presidential salary between various charities. He used the rest to supplement the incomes of his staff.

    A recent study by an Oklahoma think tank found that teachers salaries in Michigan are the highest in the nation when adjusted for the lower cost of living here. When salaries are adjusted to reflect the difference between prices here and the national average, Michigan teachers on average earned the equivalent of $69,888 in the 2015-16 school year. The study was authored by Byron Schlomach of the Oklahoma-based 1889 Institute, a free-market think tank. Schlomach said in an email he used salary data from a National Education Association survey. Michigans average teacher salary when unadjusted is $63,878, ranking 10th nationally....

    BP is facing a revolt from its shareholders over the salary of its CEO Bob Dudley. Dudleys salary jumped 20 percent in 2015 to $19.6 million, the same year in which BP reported a record loss of $6.4 billion and laid off more than 5,000 workers. His rising salary has been met with opposition from shareholders because it is not only unseemly, but also because the raise is not connected to the companys negative performance. "We consider the pay of the CEO to be simply too high, and particularly so in a year when the company suffered a record loss...

    When Curtis Ivery observed his 20th anniversary as chancellor of Wayne County Community College last year, press reports listed his salary at $250,000. As far as his base pay goes, that was correct. But when it comes to high-ranking municipal officials like Ivery, the base pay is often just the starting point. Ivery actually collected $368,836 in 2014-15, which makes him the highest-paid person covered by the states school pension system. This list is composed largely of public school and community college employees. Here are the top 10 highest paid in Michigan: Curtis Ivery, Wayne County Community College, superintendent: $368,836...

    Mid-sized and regional airlines in the US are suffering from a pilot shortage that could threaten the health of the broader US aviation industry. The labor shortfall has led to canceled flights at carriers like Mesa Airlines and Silver Airways. That has hit smaller airports, such as in Redding, California, or Erie, Pennsylvania, according to figures from the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA). The staffing crunch could also constrain traffic for larger companies like United Airlines and Delta Air Lines that depend on the mid-sized companies to serve rural consumers and feed customers into their networks. "It's becoming a...

    In the market for a home? Mortgage website HSH.com has updated its estimate of how much annual income a household would need to buy a home in major metropolitan areas in the US, according to fourth-quarter 2015 data. Thanks to lower mortgage rates and home prices, homes were more affordable in nearly every metro area measured than they had been in the previous quarter. The National Association of Realtors told HSH.com that it doesn't expect this trend to continue. The site also calculated how it would change the salary needed to buy a home if a buyer were to put...

    A handful of today's top colleges ask for more than $60,000 a year — and they're only getting pricier. Does such a pricey education pay off in the long run? We looked at a new report from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, which breaks down the median earnings of students from over 1,400 colleges 10 years after starting their studies. Using Business Insider's list of the 20 most expensive colleges in America, we highlighted how much students are earning after graduating from the priciest schools. Only one of these schools, Harvey Mudd College, ranked in Georgetown's...

    A Detroit businessman’s idea to attract talent to the city’s public schools by paying teachers between $125,000 to $150,000 could cost close to half a billion dollars every year. If superimposed on the school district’s current salaries and the state’s pension system, it would add up to $462 million to the Detroit school district’s $642 million annual operating budget, a 72 percent increase. Peter Karmanos, who founded Compuware and is the owner of the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, offered the idea on Charlie Langton’s radio show. According to the most recent state records, there were 3,677 teachers in the Detroit Public...

    Wall Street pay exploded last year to a record high. Average salaries, including bonuses, grew by 14% in 2014 to $404,800, according to a new report from New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. After inflation, pay in 2014 was the third highest on record. The average Wall Street salary was nearly six times that of the rest of New York City's private sector, where the average salary was $72,300 last year. Bonuses were similar to their levels before the 2008 financial crisis. The average bonus, up more than 50% over the past three years, was $172,900 last year, according to...

  • Department of Labor Set to Change Overtime Exemption Regulations under the FLSA

    On July 6th, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking with the potential to affect an untold number of employers. The proposed rule, published in the Federal Register at 80 FR 38515, drastically changes the DOLs interpretation of the Fair Labor Standards Act with respect to overtime exemptions. The current rule, put in place in 2004, exempts employees with salaries of at least $455 a week ($23,660 a year) and who perform executive, administrative, professional, outside sales and computer duties from overtime regulations. In a Presidential Memorandum in March of 2014, President Obama directed the DOL...
