Jersey City Council boosts its own pay while ignoring city workers, residents in need | Opinion

By Elvin Dominici

Jersey City has an affordability crisis that is displacing minorities and lifelong residents from the city that they call home. This crisis has been empowered and embraced by this city’s government that welcomes big developers regardless of the needs and concerns of our communities and the residents that make them whole.

The average annual household income in Jersey City is $105,120, while the median household income sits at $70,752 per year. These salary numbers do not represent the reality of low-income and lifelong residents who are being displaced out of our city. We can see this disparity as we look at the salary of local public servants, who many times are local residents who grew up in this city. Newly hired rookie police officers earn between $30,000 and $45,000; meanwhile newly hired public school teachers have a salary of $31,000.
