World leaders with the highest salaries: are we getting our money’s worth?

According to Statista, “when it comes to salary levels among world leaders, there is tremendous variation across the globe. Nobody earns as much as Singapore’s prime minister, though. Lee Hsien Loong earned $2,856,930 from 2008 to 2012 before public disquiet prompted him to take a 28 percent paycut. In 2015, his annual salary still amounts to $1.7 million U.S. dollars – that’s enough to pay the combined annual wage of of the leaders of France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom combined.”

But I’m not sure we’re getting our money’s worth either.

“U.S. President Barack Obama earns $400,000 every year, quite a distance short of Lee Hsien Loong but still very high by international standards. Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper is on $260,000 while Angela Merkel follows with $234,400. Russian President Vladmir Putin’s annual salary amounts to $136,000. That’s still substantially more than Xi Jinping, China’s leader. He earns just $22,000 every year.”

And where’s Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on this list? Nowhere near makes the cut. He only makes $50,400 a year. Boy, I’d say Israel is getting a BARGAIN.

It’s not the salary, it’s the perks. Hundreds of millions for vacations and outings for his friends and family.

Are you promoting class warfare Ms Hickford?

Rafael X

Petty Moochelle Hickford have nothing better do to than to nickel and dime the President. Newsflash: Obama was a best selling author before becoming President.

Read only by uneducated getto worms. Dont worry, trash will be taken out very soon. Your mudslime hero will have to run back to kenya befor too much longer. Just a side note to the idiot blacks that support this ass clown, HE HATES YOU GETTO TRASH MOST OF ALL. LOL at fools who support the forst half black president.

Rafael X
Guest

Uneducated “ghetto” worms can read? Good to know. Although trailer park rodents obviously can’t spell. You’re right about one thing a lot of trash will be taken out once Obama is out of office. All the failed writers and editors getting paid to say, “half-black” and “Kenyan” over and over will be out of a job. All that trash media will be taken out since they wont serve a purpose anymore.

James Gentry
Guest

LOL. I thought YOU people where proud of your ghetto roots. And he is half and half, not black. Sorry soul sista, maybe one day a black will become POTUS, but not today.

Nanana booboo, stick your head in doodoo.

What are you 12?

James Gentry
Guest

What I said is just slightly more intelligent than your comment about best selling author. No one read that ass clowns attempt at wrighting. If you support that idiot, you are one hard core rasist. That’s the whole truth and nothing else matters.

Rafael X

Your attempts at “writing” are giving me an eyesore. Have a good night kid.

Are you really the only troll available tonight? You must be at the low end of the pay scale.

James Gentry

I didn’t know you could text/post here using an obama phone. Go figure, another shining example of my hard earned tax dollar’s not at work. Congrats on sucking from the government’s tit. Weird how 10% of the population get 45% of the government’s handouts. Sleep well, welfare queen.

Seeing your severe case of fat fingers I figured you already knew.

Wat choo sayin?

James Gentry

One thing I have to admit, you people are sure fun to watch running around chasing that ball.

Rafael X

If only you had a pair of those balls.

James Gentry

Why you be sweating my balls? You one of those down low brothas?

Even if I was you don’t have any. Just a mouth.

Even at $400,000 we are definitely not getting our money’s worth. When you add in the fact that he will be paid, have an office and have Secret Service for life…then it gets crazy. If you add in the “MILLIONS” that Moochelle has spent on Vacations…Definitely Not Worth It!

Barry, owes us a lot of money.

That’s about $14,611 per round of golf he has played since he has been in office!

Anything over minimum wage and .50 per mile for mileage is too much…

Rafael X

If anything Obama is underpaid for dealing with all that crap.
