SacBee editor addresses concerns about salaries database

Sacramento Bee
Melanie Sill says dozens of state workers have contacted the Bee about its salaries database. “The Bee did not set out to embarrass anyone or to invade anyone’s privacy — government pay is public record, not private information. The salary database is part of a larger effort by The Bee to put public information in easy reach of readers.”
