Feel better about yourself today. You’re probably earning a higher salary wage this year than former Presidential candidate, and master of expertly coifed hair, John Edwards.

Edwards starts new job

John Edwards has a new part-time job as head of the University of North Carolina law school’s new Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity.

Edwards will earn $40,000 a year from the state university to head the center and has made a two-year commitment.

Then again, it is only a “part-time” job and he’s probably raking in about 2 million a year in stock dividends, but still, your paycheck has a bigger number on it. So, you’ve got that going for you.
