Ivanka Trump's Husband Wants to Pay Peanuts
Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, married Jared Kushner, real estate heir in his own right and owner of The New York Observer weekly newspaper. The couple is expecting a baby in late summer/early fall, and Kushner also is expecting to launch the new New York Observer magazine -- once he finds a qualified managing editor who will work for $30,000 per year, according to a job posting on mediabistro.com.
Perhaps they inadvertently left a zero off that number? If so, they need to pay their copy editor a little more too.
"This is a great position for a new journalist who is looking to take on a management role and gain valuable experience regarding all aspects of producing a magazine from start to finish," reads the ad, so apparently they're looking for a managing editor who is a newbie to the publishing industry, although the ad states that two years of experience are required.
At least the new person in charge will have "a team of five interns" (unpaid, perhaps?) to help produce the magazine. Those interns will come in handy as the new managing editor will also "oversee various other publications and sections, including Observer Philanthropy, The Educated Observer, real estate magazines and travel magazines."
It's more than likely that Kushner has never had to make ends meet in New York City on $30,000 per year. But if he's serious about launching a new city magazine, he might want to loosen the purse strings a little bit. Would he allow his future son or daughter to work for a paltry salary like that?
