Breaking down the numbers

Among the 1,009 University Health Network's employees, who received more than six-figure salaries 447 received earnings between $100,000 and $110,000 followed by 394 who received between $110,001 and $150,000 , 71 received between $150,001 and $200,000 , 22 received between $200,001 and $250,000 , 30 received between $250,001 and $300,000 , 45 received over $300,000 at University Health Network.

The Sunshine List

The Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, makes Ontario's public sector more open and accountable to taxpayers. The act requires organizations that receive public funding from the Province of Ontario to make public, by March 31 each year, the names, positions, salaries and total taxable benefits of employees paid $100,000 or more in the previous calendar year.

In Ontario the Sunshine List was first published in 1996, by the Progressive Conservative government of Mike Harris. Just 4,576 names appeared on the first list.

A lot has been debated about the $100,000 threshold of the Sunshine List. If the list was adjusted for inflation since 1996, the real benchmark salary would now be around $151,929.

Those in favor of the current benchmark argue that $100,000 still a lot of money. The average weekly wages for workers in Ontario is $974, which amounts to $50,600 per year. That includes overtime pay, and assumes no weeks off. This is half of the Sunshine List threshold.
