Most top-earning jobs in DR are in the public sector

Each one of the 10 top-paying jobs in the Dominican Republic is higher than even the president’s salary

SANTO DOMINGO, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC — The highest paying jobs in the Dominican Republic are in the public sector, but not politicians or even the president.

This was recently revealed by local news organization Acento, which ranked the top 10 jobs that earn the highest salary each month.

The highest-paying jobs all earn more than the President of the Dominican Republic.

According to that data, the lowest of the top earners comes in at just under $600,000 Dominican pesos (RD) per month.

That equals about USD$11,320, meaning all of the Dominican Republic’s top earners take home at least RD$6 million every year, not including benefits, bonuses or other job perks.

Meanwhile, by law, the President of the Dominican Republic is only allowed a monthly salary of RD$450,000, or around USD$8,489.95.

Although, without a doubt, all of these salaries are well above the nation’s RD$14,000/month minimum wage.

    The fifth highest-paid job is an Insurance Superintendent, whose monthly salary is RD$800,000 or nearly USD$15,100.
