Group Says NYC School Custodian Pay Tops $100K

The Empire Center, a fiscally conservative think tank, reports that New York City's public school custodians on average were paid more than $109,000 in the 2014 fiscal year, making them the highest paid group of municipal employees last year.

The new city payroll data posted on the center's website shows that 634 of the 799 custodians received more than $100,000 in pay.

They are among 509,000 city workers whose names, titles, base pay and total pay are in the database.

According to the center, an associate inspector for the city's Department of Buildings was the city government's overtime leader with $179,099 that raised his total pay to $265,498.

The report shows officers and other employees of the city police department received the most overtime totaling $575.9 million.
