Judgment Pay

The annual salary of a U.S. federal district court judge is $165,000 - that's unchanged since 1993. Meanwhile, a 1st-year associate at a large law firm typically earns about $125,000. Since the 1960s, federal judge pay has declined 24% in real dollars, while the average worker's real pay increased 15%.

Interesting stats. Not sure they make me feel better though. It kind of sounds like only people with a mission or people who can't get jobs in the real world would become judges.

so basically you trade off 50000 in the beginning for more flexibility and movability

Judges put up with so much too. In unrelated number trivia, do you know the ratio of male to female bees in a bee hive?
