GREENWICH VILLAGE — The City Council just voted to give themselves a 32 percent pay increase, and now all of them make more than the median income in their districts.
The raise was controversial, as the independent Quadrennial Advisory Commission recommended only a 23 percent raise. Only seven council members voted against the pay hike.
DNAinfo New York mapped the city's districts to show how much more each council member makes than the median income among their constituents.
Two thirds of them make more than twice the people they represent, and some make more than eight times as much.
The Greenwich Village and SoHo representatives — Corey Johnson, Rosie Mendez, and Margaret Chin — all voted yes to the pay increase.
They each now take home an annual salary of $148,500.
For Chin, who covers much of lower Manhattan, including SoHo, Little Italy and Nolita, that's about 1.3 times her district's median income of $113,744.
Mendez, whose east side district includes NoHo and Greenwich Village east of Fifth Avenue, makes 1.7 times her constituents' median income of $87,179.
And Johnson, whose west side district includes the West Village and the Meatpacking District, makes 1.59 times his constituents' median household income of $93,246.00.
