How Would Job Ad For Supreme Court Justice Look?
ROBERT SIEGEL, host:
Salary: $208,100 a year. Hours: long, often including weekends but summer is pretty much off. Likely you won't find the posting for Supreme Court justice on Craigslist, but if you did you might also find the Constitution guarantees no furlough days and no cut in salary, nor does it specify any qualifications for the job. Staff includes up to four law clerks, two secretaries and an aide to chambers. Perks include cozy office with fireplace, office art work on loan from the Smithsonian, cafeteria in building, gym with workout machines and basketball court - the famous highest court in the land. And, oh yes, the job comes with uniform.
