Everyone wants to know how much money everyone else makes—even more now given the gloomy economic climate. We asked around town to find out what people are pulling down, from bank CEOs to L&L cashiers, to just about everyone else we could think of. Many local companies were guarded about releasing information, perhaps because of the recession. Salaries listed by job titles are a result of surveying local business owners and researching public and corporate records. Salaries attached to people by name are those that are public information—such as government officials and nonprofit executives. All figures reflect the most current salary information, some including pay reductions. Take a look and find out how your paycheck stacks up.
