In Boston, 1 in 4 city workers made six-figure incomes

One out of four full-time Boston municipal employees made more than $100,000 last year, a figure more than double the city’s median income.

Payroll records released Friday showed that the overwhelming majority of the city’s top earners worked for the Police Department, where 197 employees made more than the $175,000 salary of the mayor.
