$2658.63 Less

May 7th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist is one of about ten thousand state employees who make more than forty-five thousand dollars a year and who will be taking a two-percent pay cut. We asked the Governor what that would mean to him personally.

How are you going to cope with a two percent less in your personal paycheck?

“I’ll just tighten my belt a little,” Crist said.

Do you have an idea of what you might do without?

“What I might do without? Maybe steak?” he replied.

The Governor’s current salary is $132,931.56, which means he’ll do without more than one steak. His share of the budget pain comes to twenty-six hundred and fifty-eight dollars.
