Who Are the Highest-Paid Civil Servants? New List Reveals Top 1,000
A new online service has put a spotlight on the 1,000 most highly paid federal civil servants, renewing the debate on whether government employees are overcompensated.
The list of highest paid civil servants, issued by an Internet start-up firm, WikiOrgCharts, provides a new perspective on the extent to which doctors, lawyers and banking professionals hold top-paying government jobs, and the sizable incomes that the federal government pays to attract senior management talent.
The ranking also represents the latest example of private sector firms creating new products using publicly available government data.
The newly-released rankings reveal the names, titles, agencies and base salaries of 1,000 federal workers, based on information released earlier this year from the federal Office of Personnel Management.
