Massport Parking Attendants Pull in Outrageous Salaries

In case you missed it, the Boston Herald today highlighted the outrageous salaries Massport parking attendants are collecting. In fact, the Herald reported that at least 16 parking attendants took home more than $90,000 last year. If that doesn’t make you stop dead in your tracks, we don’t know what will!

On top of that, seven parking attendants took home more than $100,000 last year. Rightfully so, the Herald pointed out that those seven are all members of Teamsters Local 25 Parking. Who even knew such a union existed?

While we appreciate Secretary Mullan for saying he’ll review the shocking salaries, we are frustrated that it took a nasty headline in the Boston Herald to spark this action. A complete review of all agencies should be conducted in order to prevent this from ever happening again.
