Responding to the salary scandal in Bell, Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel posted the annual salaries of every L.A. city employee online on August 6, 2010.

Greuel lists almost every approved position in city government — from her own ($196,667) down to a Vocational Worker I in the Department of General Services ($27,582)

"The public’s trust has been broken as a result of the recent scandal in Bell," Greuel said. "This is an important step to provide greater transparency and openness in how taxpayer dollars are spent."

She said Los Angeles is now the largest city to post a comprehensive list of city employee salaries.

The database does not list employees by name, only position, and does not include the Department of Water and Power. The abbreviations appear exactly as provided by the city.
