Ever wonder what Santa’s job would pay? Well the Bureau of Labor Statistics figures Kris Kringle would make close to $133,000.  Bureau of Labor Statistics figures Kris Kringle does more than just deliver toys.

Manufacturing executive, sleigh pilot, labor negotiator, compulsive list checker and fulfiller of children’s dreams, Santa Claus has no peers when it comes to juggling diverse duties at his North Pole headquarters.

The man who sees you when you’re sleeping and knows when you’re awake should be earning a well-deserved six figures, according to our analysis of wage data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We took a look at the tasks for which Santa is best known and calculated what it would cost to hire others to accomplish them.

This year, the value of Old St. Nick’s work is $132,948.

That’s it? No wonder he only comes once a year. Keep up the great work Santa and hopefully you’ll make a stop at the Austin house this year. Merry Christmas!
