Wait, wait, just listen! You know the annual “What People Earn” issue in Parade magazine, right? They run pictures of ordinary and famous people from across the country with brief information about their jobs and salaries.
We'd like to do a local version of “What People Earn” in the News Tribune on the same day. We know it’s very hard for a Northlander to discuss personal finances with the whole darned world, but the only way these things work is if real people break the taboo and share a few basic details.
It’s not bragging, and it’s not whining. Think of it as participating in a social study, helping your fellow citizens better understand the community.
What do you say, are you willing? Contact managing editor Georgia Swing at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (218) 723-5311.
