I Found Some Budget Cuts… FOIA finds two NLRB lawyers making way over $100k, not doing any government work

Per the Washington Examiner: FOIA finds two NLRB lawyers making way over $100k, not doing any government work

Among much else, the ALG found, according to its NetRightDaily web site, two NLRB attorneys making far in excess of $100,000. But they aren’t working for the NLRB, they are working on “official time” for the federal employee union that represents the board’s workers.

Other NLRB employees are also paid official time for part-time work on union matters, for an amount totalling in excess of $510,000, according to Tidwell, who also found that NLRB is the federal agency with the highest per-capita use of official time among all federal departments and agencies.

Bert Pearlston, General Attorney (Labor) for the NLRB: $141,726.00 per year
Steven Sloper, Labor Management Relations Examiner: $116,240.00 per year
Part-time work on union matters: in excess of $510,000
If cut, that’s $767,966.

One would think someone who believes in the good work of the NLRB would want to protect it’s integrity, foster a reputation practicality, accountability, and good stewardship of it’s Tax funding.
