Janet Yellen apparently needs to sit her boss down for a frank talk re: how much she's valued by this organization.

The top 113 earners among staff at the Federal Reserve's Washington headquarters make an average of $246,506 per year, excluding bonuses and other benefits - more than Fed Chair Janet Yellen and nearly double the normal top government rate. Yellen, whose salary is set by Congress, earns $201,700 a year. The details on Fed pay were provided to Reuters in response to a Freedom of Information Act request for data on all employees of the U.S. central bank's board whose salaries outstrip $130,810, which is the top of the government's pay scale in most areas.

At least 133 staffers at U.S. Fed earn more than Janet Yellen
