Why is it so much fun to find out how much people make, even if you don’t know them? On FiPS, this week’s edition of “Who Gives a Shit?” invites readers of the salty Park Slope blog to answer the question: What do you do and how much do you get paid to do it?

The lowest paid people have no jobs at all, of course, and on the other end is a junior investment banker who makes $150,000. But where are all the strippers and drug dealers? The richie riches? Those people who supposedly make $300 a day linking to Google Ads? Don’t any of them live in Park Slope? Read the full list here and add your own, for no good reason.
