Committee sought for state employee wage study
Friday, June 1, 2012
As Missouri government employees are being recognized this week for their value to state operations, lawmakers are planning how to determine what improvements are needed to the employees’ paychecks and benefits.
Their plan is a follow-up to last year’s Joint Interim Committee on State Employee Wages, which confirmed what everybody was pretty sure they already knew: Missouri government workers rank last among the 50 states in wages earned.
This year, lawmakers approved Rep. Mike Bernskoetter’s resolution to re-authorize the 10-member committee.
