The list is out! The salaries of Cleveland's public employees have been released in the form of a searchable list. We combed through that list, which can be found here
, to find the top ten earners on Cleveland's payroll for 2013.
Mayor Frank G. Jackson comes in as the fourth highest paid employee. Many of the slots
are held by the mayor and his cabinet.
Another trend is that nine of the ten slots are held by men, and the only woman comes in at number ten.
Is there anyone on this list who should be paid more? How about less?
