FOIA finds two NLRB lawyers making way over $100k, but not for doing government work

Take the National Labor Relations Board. The NLRB has been ground zero for much of President Obama's tenure in the Oval Office for his efforts to reward Big Labor for its campaign support in 2008 and 2012.

As a result, the NLRB has issued hundreds of rulings since 2009 that critics in the business community and elsewhere say too often give unfair - and sometimes maybe even illegal - advantages to the unions.

...there are other interesting things happening at NLRB, as the Americans for Limited Government, one of the conservative activist non-profits that keeps a very close eye on Big Labor, discovered recently by filing an FOIA.

NLRB Pays Two Employees $100K Each to Work for the Union - Brad Tidwell/Net Right Daily

Americans for Limited Government (ALG) has discovered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that there are two official time full-time employees of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) who make over $100,000 each. These are employees whose official job is to handle internal NLRB union activities exclusively, rather than carrying out any of the NLRB’s official responsibilities.

Bert Pearlston, General Attorney (Labor) for the NLRB, made $141,726.00 per year, and Steven Sloper, Labor Management Relations Examiner made $116,240.00. With the national median salary at $40,300 and unemployment of 7.9%, jobs like these would be highly sought in the private sector.
This is in addition to the approximately $510,000 the NLRB pays other employees for part time “official time” union work, or work that only deals with internal NLRB union activities, not the actual official work of the NLRB
