Cincinnatians have a thing about money.

They don’t want to discuss it, and certainly not when it comes to the sensitive matter of salaries. It’s like sex. We know it’s out there, but it’s impolite to talk about. Call us crazy, then, but Cincy is fascinated by exactly what people earn. In the city known as Porkopolis, we want to know who brings home the bacon, and how much. So read on and, in the doing, find out how your salary stacks up …
