Legislators will make at least twice as much as most California workers following the roughly $5,000 pay bump approved by the California Citizens Compensation Commission Wednesday, census figures show.

The median pay for full-time California workers was roughly $47,000 in 2011. Legislators will soon make $95,291 a year.

After getting their raises, California legislators will make more money than about 85 percent of full-time, year-round workers in California. They'll make more than about two-thirds of the state's full-time workers holding a bachelor's degree. (Those figures include only salary, not per diem stipends.)

This chart compares legislative salaries to other common occupations in California.
