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.
