Standard Media Group Payroll Leaked.

Standard Group employees’ (April 2011) payroll has been leaked, exposing a horror in salary discrepancies in the Mombasa Road-based media giant, notably earnings in the editorial staff where the hard working reporters and cameramen are paid close to nothing while the fat dogs on the top take home all the cash home, according to the controversial Citizen Weekly.

God come down and save their tears.

The group’s deputy chairman Paul Melly earns a gross salary of Ksh 1.3 million a month, beating the lowest earning employee by nearly the same amount, an exposure that might compel Kenyan media to
review their salaries scales and ask God to help them survive in the media market that is under massive pressure, sources explained.

“Most editorial staff between Ksh 40,000- 60,000 while the top managers who double up as directors earn from Ksh 400,000 and above,” according to a source.  “Oh my God, I am looking for another job; if this is what is happening in Standard Group, I am read” a top Standard Group source told the Jackal News.

Meanwhile, massive shock, despair and excitement descended on the Standard Group after the Jackal News re-published the leaked payroll, exposing a horror of salary discrepancies in the group. And staff reacted. “People are shocked and demoralized after discovering what others earn while they do the same work,” a source told the Jackal News after the list went viral.

Another source added: “These small people who are underpaid are very happy. They want the world to see what is going in this company. The top managers are hiding in their offices wondering what to do next.” “This is the best thing that has ever happened to Standard Group and now we are demanding change,” the source added.

Several other sources called the Jackal News desk to complain that their salaries were much lower than what has been published. “The story on salaries is not true n I don’t earn that, part of this list is so 2008,” the source said on total confidentiality. “It is a bit unfair to publish such (the list) without checking if it’s the truth. We all want to be paid better, but u (what you) published and what Citizen Weekly published so malicious.”

Another source added: “Anchors, apart from the salaries, get responsibility allowances that include: make-up, wardrobe, hair allowances every month, which is way more than their gross salaries are. In addition, there is an allowance if you fly.”

Note: The fellow who leaked the information redacted some names and some of the employees have since fled the company to greener pastures. The list reflects gross salaries as of April 2011.
