De Blasio: Fariña salary 'absolutely appropriate'In response to questions over new schools chancellor Carmen Fariña's salary--a combination of her D.O.E. salary and her pension--de Blasio said Monday that the arrangement was "absolutely appropriate."
He also noted that several members of the Bloomberg administration double-dipped.
"Look, she literally has one of the toughest jobs in America," de Blasio said.
Farina will earn over $400,000 a year between her pension and D.O.E. salary.
