After yesterday's Australian Census Debacle, staggering revelations have come to light that Australian Statistician David Kalisch earns a staggering annual salary of $705,030.
To put this into comparison:
This more than the President of the United States ($400,000USD = $520,512AUD)
This is more than DOUBLE the salary of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Military, one of the most powerful men on the planet ($243,162USD = $316,156AUD)
This is almost TRIPLE the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (£142,500 = $242,169AUD)
After yesterday, can anyone really say that this is our money well spent?
