The most read article at Northern Insights is Adventures in not net zero land. It begins with this:
“Helping manage the BC government’s war on school teachers and public education is Deputy Minister of Education James Gorman. He is a long time senior bureaucrat.
“Public accounts show his salary in fiscal 2006 was $164,085. In fiscal 2011, it was $228,942, an increase of 40% in five years. During that period, Gorman’s expenses were $136,616.”
Since Gorman was wielding a sharpened stick in the BC Liberal war on teachers, it’s worth noting what happened to his own pay package in fiscal 2012.
The Comptroller General’s Detailed Schedules of Payments indicate that Gorman’s salary was up 9% in 2012, rising to $248,962. That raise of $1,700 a month was more than the annual earnings of a minimum wage worker.
Gorman’s expenses of $27,498 were up by 31% in fiscal 2011-12.
