Wisniewski on Christie administration salaries in context of shared sacrifice plea: ‘outrageous’

Thirty-four people  in the administration of Gov. Chris Christie each makes over $100,000, with Christie himself earning $175,000 by statute, according to a story published today by the Associated Press, which the Christie administration otherwise said contained several inaccuracies when comparing the stats with the administration of former Gov. Jon Corzine.

But Democratic State Party Chairman John Wisniewski said the high-end salaries in the Christie administration stood out glaringly against the governor’s call to teachers for year-long wage freezes and other cost savings measures. 

“It’s absolutely outrageous for the governor to be bullying and calling for shared sacrifice when he does not include himself as part of that sacrifice,” Wisniewski told PolitickerNJ.com.
