Political Science Salaries in Idaho

One of the fastest growing professions in Idaho, according to the Idaho Department of Labor, is that of attorney. Indeed, these professionals seem to receive one of the top salaries of the many political science occupations available within Idaho. Politicians in Idaho are rewarded well monetarily also, as shown in the chart below. The only fluke seems to be the Lieutenant Governor's salary, which inexplicably is much less than the salaries of other elected officials in the state.
