Paid more to manage less

Yesterday I noted that as the city is cutting front-line staff and reducing service delivery to taxpayers, many of the top city leaders have received raises.

As several readers pointed out, some were promoted and got a salary boost to go with it. But that's not the story with most.

Of the top 67 earners on the city's payroll this month, 12 have received promotions since last August. The other 55 didn't--but 31 of them still received 3 percent raises, which worked out to between $4,320 and $5,160 each per year.

Most are leaders of departments that made multiple layoffs. A few examples:
