Crunching the Numbers Behind SF Public Employees' Bonuses

In our cover story this week, we explore the little-publicized form of compensation known as "premium pay" -- a vast range of bonuses available to government employees for performing certain types of work, many of which are in their job descriptions.

Categories of premium pay include bonuses for firefighter-EMTs -- even though all San Francisco Fire Department employees are required to hold EMT certification as a condition of their employment -- and bonuses for engineers who hold emergency-response licenses required by the Public Utilities Commission.

The figures behind this story were provided to us by the Office of the Controller. There's a lot of information, but for those of you who want to crunch the numbers on your own, here's a spreadsheet summarizing the amounts and kinds of premium pay to all city workers. (This table does not provide the amounts earned by each individual. The figures are arranged by type of pay, department, labor union, etc.)
