Nice work if you can get it.
An annual salary of $385,000 breaks down to a paycheck of $7,400 every week. Does this amount strike you as a bit extreme for a Chief Diversity Officer?

ANNALS OF THE 1 PERCENT: University Of Michigan To Pay Diversity Bureaucrat $385,000 Yearly
The University of Michigan is paying its newly-appointed chief diversity officer a sweet salary that is substantially more than any governor in any state makes.
Robert Sellers is the taxpayer-funded administrator who has struck it rich, according to Michigan Capitol Confidential.
In his position as “vice provost for equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer,” Sellers will collect a cool $385,000 per year — over $32,000 each month and over $7,400 each week.
The annual salary is just $15,000 less than the amount President Barack Obama brings to the executive residence of the White House each year.
Each year, Sellers will make $194,177 more than the salary of America’s highest-paid governor — Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania — as a diversity bureaucrat. He will make $250,208 more than the salary of the average state governor in the United States, which is $134,792. He will make $384,999 more than Michigan’s governor, Rick Snyder, who accepts a salary of $1 each year.
Sellers is in the top one percent in income among all workers in Michigan and in the top two percent among all workers in the entire United States.
The median household income in Michigan is $54,208 per year.
