@Libertarians@4Freedom... just a reminder that Public Sector employees pay taxes as well. AND my purchases of your goods and/or services feed you as well. It is reciprocal my friend.
I am a State Employee as well and I say GREAT DECISION! Why on earth should someone who has had disciplinary action receive the same raise as someone who has done a fantastic job in their position? Hopefully, this move will help some employees realize their effort or lack thereof will be noticed.
