This story generated many pointed comments as most managers would fall inside this income strata. Most pronounced was how the weakest link in interpersonal skills could end up as the General Manager for Human Resources with a $164,838.00 salary.
The distrust of certain, not all, managers is still quite evident. When the strike ends the one statement a manager should not say is:
This strike has been hard on all of us.Any one who complains after making over $77.00/hour for the past 10 weeks will lose any and all respect of returning staff.
$300,000.00 marks the bottom end of the Top 1% of income earned in Canada.
City Manager Judy Rogers falls within this category. I don't begrudge her the amount. I would not want a job that regularly consumes 15 hours a day of navigating the inflated egos of politicians and the unrelenting demands of taxpayers and employees. CUPE has consistently complained about Ms Roger's pay but it is fair when comparing equal pay for equal work in other cities across Canada.
