SPRINGFIELD – For dozens of state troopers, the Massachusetts Turnpike has become a fast lane to $150,000-plus salaries.
Nine officers from Troop E, the turnpike patrol unit, earned more than $200,000 last year, 41 made $175,000 or more, and 93 topped the $150,000 mark, according to payroll records reviewed by The Republican.
The five highest paid troopers took in a combined $1.1 million.
5 troopers = $1.1 million. Amazing. From Springfield Republican.
