The Washington Post collected the salaries of 100 Washingtonians to commemorate Labor Day. On the list are a variety of professions, from garbage collector to panhandler to Abraham Lincoln impersonator, but what we really want to know: How much do DC’s media folk make?
Scott Simon, whose voice is familiar to NPR listeners everywhere, takes home just over $300k.
A writer for National Archives’ Prologue magazine, Rob Crotty, earns $57,000.
Obama’s speechwriter Jon Favreau takes home $172,000.
Happy Labor Day!
