Take This Job and Shove It….
…I’m going to work for Wazzu! From the Spokesman-Review:
The effort to find a replacement for the retiring V. Lane Rawlings is just beginning. Advisory committees are being formed, and a search firm hired. Officials hope to make a decision by spring, with a new boss in place for the next academic year.
But one thing seems very likely: The next president will make more money than the current one, who makes a very good living.
Rawlins’ compensation for the 2006-07 school year is $514, 450, and while he has turned down raises in earlier years, his pay has risen steeply since he was hired in 2000. He’s one of 23 public university presidents nationwide who earned more than half a million dollars in total compensation last year – salary plus bonuses and perks – according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
A cool half a million dollars for a university job. What does he think he is, a football coach?
