Ain’t life grand, $100 grand that is


From the St. Thomas Times-Journal

Nineteen local public sector employees have joined the so-called Sunshine Club for public sector workers earning more than $100,000 in 2008.

Under the Public Sector Disclosure Act, the name and salary of employees earning more than $100,000 are published yearly.

The biggest increase in this area came for St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital which saw seven new employees earn salaries in excess of $100,000. Three of those were registered nurses and CEO Paul Collins said it’s now normal to find them with six-figure salaries.

“I think it’s becoming quite common… we had one on it last year, we have four on it this year. It’ll likely be more next year,” he said, noting Woodstock saw a similar number of RNs surpass $100,000. Accumulation of overtime pay is also to blame. “We are grappling with overtime issues that I think a lot of hospitals are, just trying to address issues around sick time.”

A part list of local Sunshine Club members follows. (The City of St. Thomas released its list earlier and can be found on City Scope post for March 7, “$100,000 club defies economic downturn” ) An asterisk indicates new $100,000-plus employees. Taxable benefits are noted in parentheses.
