The fact remains that the VC of Murdoch is receiving the highest pay in WA. In the 2008 annual report, his 2008 salary was $798,000 and $746,000 in 2007, $675,000 in 2006. That's $52,000 or 6.97% increase in one year and $123,000 in 2 years. Yet the staff are receiving the lowest pay! In the same time, the highest pay in Curtin was between 500 to 510 thousands, UWA between 630 to 640 thousands, and ECU between 480 to 490 thousands. It is a local issue!
