Q. In the U.S. Congress the salary for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is approximately $174,000 per year. How many of University of North Carolina Wilmington’s staff and faculty exceed this amount?

A. Six University Of North Carolina Wilmington employees earn more than $174,000 annually, according to a database for spring 2012 provided by UNCW to the StarNews.
