Sunshine List: Ranks Of Ontario’s Public Sector Overlords Earning 100K Likely To Top 100K

The Ontario government will release its so-called Sunshine List today, stating the name, job title and salary of every public-sector worker who earns more than $100,000 a year.

Last year’s list included not only top-earning bureaucrats and cabinet ministers, but also municipal workers, police, nurses and firefighters. It also totalled 97,796 names. That’s an 82 per cent increase from 2008, when there were 53,774 names on the list.

Update: Below is the 2014 Ontario Sunshine List. Read it and weep.

    Never fear. With provinces finally making hard decisions about their finances, Wynne has the solution. She is hosting a conference on global warming today.(hang on to your wallets). After all, all this talk about money bores her. And what has it to do with homosexual issues. Forget that they don’t care about getting back the overpayments on cheques they sent out. And don’t question the billions being spent on the bread and circus panam games. I have been watching the special segments every night on the Barrie station on the money being spent. A nearby rural hospital is falling apart but millions are spent on a horse barn for the games. Seventeen million is spent on a building for badminton and the list goes on. But hey, rural Ontarions are all homophobes anyway.

      Gay Pride funding , gay lesbian transaxle education are Wynne’s top priorities.
      can’t wait for total cost of Pan-Scam games to be reported ( buried,covered up, deleted)

    • Lord but she is insane.

    lets say a list of those $90K and over.
    list would be 3 or 4 times as big , easy.
    100K is tip of the iceberg

      In context of ontario and it’s premier that saying has a whole other meaning.

    • Very likely.

    I worked in an Ontario ministry for 6 months before I had to get out due to lack of work. Seriously, it was driving me nuts coming in to work each day with nothing to do.

    Many of my old colleagues are on the list and make more than I do now by a fair margin, even though the work I do is miles tougher. Oh well, my choice.

    One guy I used to work with rarely came in because he spent his daytimes taking his daughter to school and looking after her. So instead he worked from home at night and . . . billed those hours as overtime, which they accepted as valid!

    Just think about it

    Don’t you know that things would have been exponentially worse if we hadn’t given the provincial Libs a majority last time? (I still can’t say that without bile rising in my throat!)

    Not one single entry for the City of Sudbury on the Sunshine List. Sault St. Marie, etc … No Sudbury entries , amazing.
