A new study by George Grayson, professor of government of the College of William & Mary, says Mexican politicians make "extremely high salaries." President Vicente Fox ($236,693) makes more than the leaders of France ($95,658), the U.K. ($211,434), and Canada ($75,582). And Although they are in session only a few months a year, Mexican deputies take home at least $148,000—substantially more than their counterparts in France ($78,000), and Germany ($105,000). The study was published by the Center for Immigration Studies.
