State Employees Get Full Pay Raise in House Budget

Great news – reported in the NewsTribune – the House budget includes a full two-percent cost-of-living pay raise for Missouri state employees making less than $70,000 per year. The Governor’s budget previously only provided the cost-of-living adjustment for half they year (i.e. a one-percent pay raise).

Unfortunately, this won’t get Missouri workers out of the basement (ranking 50 out of 50), but it is a step in the right direction.
