洛杉矶市议员各自雇用 22 至 36 助手, many making $  100K-plus

天使 – a city unable to fix its homeless crisis or fund its pension obligations – all 15 of its city councilors employ a staff of 22 至 36 助手. Of these, 几乎 60 earn a salary of more than $ 100,000.

That data comes from OpentheBooks, a non-profit organization that posts information on local, 州, and federal government spending.

The data further shows that Los Angeles’ 15 city councilors each take home more than $ 200,000 – a salary exceeding most members of Congress.

With other city employees, the situation is much the same. OpentheBooks identified around 20,000 city employees making more than $ 147,000 – costing taxpayers nearly $ 3 十亿.

与此同时, this is all in place while the second-largest city is facing a burgeoning financial crisis, made worse by the ongoing 冠状病毒大流行.

一个 2019 audited financial report showed that the nation’s second-largest city held a debt burden of about $ 5.1 十亿, which equates to $ 4,000 for every city taxpayer.

The report showed that most of the city’s financial problems stem from unfunded retirement obligations, 包含 $ 8.5 billion in pension, 和 $ 2.7 billion in retiree health care benefits.

The city’s financial situation was already dire before the pandemic and will likely come out worse.
