Mayor Naugle’s tradition continues….to show who makes what and how much… in Fort Lauderdale….

When my dad worked for the Justice Department in Washington D.C. ….in the 1950s….before moving on to corporate law in Chicago…all I remember hearing…

working for the government was a low paying job…..”lowly government workers”….was the phrase….

so moving to a large, prestigious Chicago law firm on N. LaSalle street was the big time!

In todays’s world it might not have been the right move….

In today’s world not only are law firms downsized, not hiring, too many lawyers out there for too few positions…the pay is not what it is to work within those government walls with pension and benefit “packages”.
Eye opening…
