White House Staffers Got a Raise Last Year, And You Did Not

Is the USA having economic troubles? I think the answer is clear, we are, and so is the rest of the world. So when Gov't is having money troubles what should they do? Give themselves raises of course! Duh

The White House released its annual salary report last week, and as usual, it's nice to work for Barack Obama: Most staffers who were there for more than a year got a salary bump. A bigger one than you did.

The last time we checked in on White House salaries, we found that an astonishing 75% of continuing staffers got raises from 2009 to 2010—a huge number given the fact that, according to compensation experts, most companies had skipped routine raises that year in reaction to the economic crisis that the White House was busy failing to solve. This time around—from 2010 to 2011—the ratio is a little less dramatic. Of the 270 White House staffers who have been there for more than a year, 146—or 54%—received raises. The average salary increase was 8%. If you look at only staffers who got raises, the average increase was twice that.

Check out this link to see a chart of raises. Do these people really deserve any kind of raise in this day of age? Some of these titles are laughable.
