Thanks Governor Nixon, for proposing a 2% raise for state employees. At my current salary level, IF I got the raise, I would make a whopping $600 more per year. Broken down into 52 weeks, that would be an extra $11.54 per week, BEFORE TAXES! Add that to increasingly expensive health insurance, with its equally wonderful decreasing coverage, long hours coupled with the virtual elimination of the ability to earn overtime, no other raises in the last several years and the fact the actual cost of living has gone up far more than 2% in those years, and I guess I should feel blessed! And there are those in state government wondering why it's difficult to retain quality employees. Go figure!
