Top 25 Federal Employee Salaries Each $350,000 Or Higher
Being that they are all federal employees, their salaries are public information. When you really think about it, it is all of us American tax payers that actually pay their salaries. News is making the rounds about how Dr Anthony Fauci is the highest paid person in federal government. Earning even more than the President of The United States, and it’s true. In fact, at least in 2019 there was a handful of people that earned either the same or more than the President. Topping the 2019 list was Dr ‘Flip-Flop’ Fauci, coming in at earning $417,608. Close behind in 2nd place was Gary H Gibbons at $406,095; Not too shabby! There are 2 federal employees that earned exactly the same amount as The President, $400,000 and they were Robert J. Wylie and John H York. The top 25 earners in the list all make $350,000 or more.
Take notice to the fact that the four people mentioned above all work for the same agency, the Department of Health and Human Resources, and their occupations are ‘Medical Officer‘. Dam, when mom told me to study to be a doctor, she wasn’t kidding! (Too bad I didn’t listen).. The full federal employee list for 2019 is a huge database found here (https://www.fedsdatacenter.com/federal-pay-rates/) and it contains records for almost 1,445,000 employees. You don’t reach an employee outside of the Department of Health and Human Resources until the 50th top entry, and that’s Jean S. Frazier, who earned (in 2019) $331,175 with Presidio Trust (https://www.presidio.gov/) in Program Management.
Now I’m not saying that all these people are not worth what they are being paid, but if we had to trim the fat somewhere, let’s start with some of these outrageous salaries. I’m pretty sure that we’d find a very large number of useless ‘positions’ that could be done away with also, furthering trimming the pork. … Thoughts? Feel free to comment below.
