Academic salary voyeurism

This site appears to present all of the salaries of full professors at the University of Ottawa for 2008.

The most startling feature of the table is the low variance, both within and across disciplines. I suspect this is due to faculty unionization, which is fairly common even at decent universities in Canada

More on economist (and general professor) salaries on Dan Hamermesh's gossip page.

As an aside, if you poke around on the internet you can find salaries (with names) for most pubic universities in the US, including UM. I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader.

Hat tip: administrator friend (who berated me for being too tough on the dean of LU a few days ago).
