New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio isn't exactly the most liked mayor by Republicans going into 2018, but that's about to get even worse when they see his latest decision. He has bumped his annual salary from $225,000 to a whopping $258,750 a year. That's a 15 percent salary increase.

To put that number into perspective, de Blasio's predecessor, who was a Republican-turned-Independent, Michael Bloomberg, took only $1 a year.

The New York Post reported that the $33,750 salary increase alone is more than someone will make in an entire year working a minimum-wage job.

De Blasio will be sworn in for his second term on Jan. 1 by the man who he met and described as his first-term highlight: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
