Blog readers, know your cash value
They take media monitoring seriously in Victoria. The task was managed in the last fiscal year by Rishi Sharma ($84,759) and Pavan Bajwa ($79,691). Reading 2009 public accounts, I counted 18 media relations people at PAB, order-in-council appointees (politicos) involved at total salary costs of more than $1 million. The typical salary of media monitoring officers is about $5,000 a month.
OK, blog followers, now you know how much your reading is worth. To monetize your efforts at the right price, demand $5,000 a month for reading the news. One other thing, you are expected to write the occasional snarky response when someone dares criticize Dear Leader and his followers. Recommend this post
