When you are a judge you don't have to maintain an office...or staff...or hustle up customers. You work for a salary but you do get benefits including medical and the state's generous pension plan.
Now some judges are complaining their recently raised pay is not enough. Granted it was left unchanged for years, but that's politics.
I haven't heard our city judges complain about their new pay. In fact, I think they approciate the opportunity to have such a good job.
