CHICAGO (CBS) – Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced today that it is publicly displaying the salaries for every employee of the City of Chicago.

THE COMPLETE LIST OF CITY SALARIES

“During the campaign I promised to have the most open, accountable and transparent government that the City of Chicago has ever seen,” Emanuel said in a statement. “Today’s effort is another step toward this goal, as we create an administration that is accountable to the citizens of Chicago.”

While city employee salary information is public, historically the information has been requested by organizations that seek to publish it. This is the first time that the city has proactively put the salary information online.
