The cost of living keeps going up ! When was the last time state employees got a pay raise ? They are 50 th in pay in my country, 56 th in OBAMA'S world .
The" AVERAGE" state employee probably makes 18k to 25k.They aren't hurting with the cost of living going up every day. Everyone keeps bad mouthing them but would you like to live on their pay ?
I have worked for the state for 25 years and make alittle more than 30k and I am at the top of my scale.Jay Nixon and the private sector dont have a clue about the AVERAGE state employee that lives pay check to pay check.
The cost of living keeps going up but when was the last time a state employee saw a pay raise? Everyone wants to biatch about state emplyees, I think the private sector should live with NO pay raises and lose some of their benefits.Then we can talk on an even playing field.
rollnthndr has it right ! Until state vokers stand up it policy as usual. Sad to say but TRUE.
I think its pretty clear how Mr. Nixon feels about his state employees. It is a shame but well understood by the average employee.Private sector should look through the blue book and they will understand why employees are upset. The rich get richer and the workers are kicked to the curb.
Come on 2012 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
How many more deputy directors can the state have? The ones getting these promotions are only the higher ups in state government. Jay is not fooling anyone but the news media.trapo studv
