Over 1,200 City Workers in Baltimore Make Six-Figure Salaries

A review of city salary data shows that over 1,200 city workers in Baltimore are making $100,000 or more a year in salary and overtime pay.

A search of a database of the salaries of the city’s 14,000 workers shows that over 1,200 workers in city services and the police and fire departments make two and, in some cases, three or more times more than the average salary of citizens of the city.

According to U.S. Census data, the median household income in Baltimore is $41,385. The census also reports that 23.8 percent of the city’s residents are below the poverty level.

Yet, over 1,200 city workers are making over $100,000 yearly. Some, like Lt. Stephen C. Nalewakjo Jr. of the city’s police department, made even more. Nalewakjo made $211,000 in the fiscal year of 2015. It appears the mayor’s office pays well too. Kaliope Parthemos, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s chief of staff, made $183,000.
