The mormon churches clergy are have extremely high pay for an unpaid clergy. The First President, quorum of the 12 apostles, the first quorum of the seventy, and the second qurom of the seventy are all paid. They are also all men by the way. Not even general relief society president receives a penny in pay.
According to mormon leaks, their base pay in 2014 was $120,000. They also receive a pay raise of about 3% per year putting their current pay at about $131,000. This isn't including their housing allowance, or the extra pay they get just for having kids, putting their actual pay is significantly higher.
This also isn't counting benefits like Healthcare, free cars, and Monson's private airplane, etc. As well as other sources of income such as book royalties from books people only buy because they are general authorities. Their pay is significantly more than double that of American mormons. Including mormons in 3rd world countries who also pay tithing to fund their lifestyle, the difference is larger.
They didn't even release this information telhemselves. They tried to hide it and claim they don't get paid at all.
I wonder if they even pay tithing themselves on that money.
