A leading activist for the poor who has ripped Gov. Cuomo over the issue of income inequality actually makes more than the governor.

Michael Kink,  the executive director of the union-backed Strong Economy For All Coalition, makes at least $183,000 a year, sources close to him say.

Kink’s salary tops Cuomo’s $179,000 annual pay. It also dwarfs the less than $110,000 made by fellow activist for the poor, Ronald Deutsch, executive director of New Yorkers For Fiscal Fairness.

Kink, critics point out, is in the top 10% of income earners in New York even as he lives in Massachusetts and benefits from a similar property tax cap that he has criticized in New York.

SEIU, I presume.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
