Florida Senators gave staffers raises despite state worker salary cuts

After the Legislature decided to cut state-worker pay last year, Florida senators did the opposite, passing out $183,000 in annual pay raises and promotions to some staffers.

In all, 61 Senate employees who now earn $45,000 or more received pay increases. A few earned raises in May just as the Legislature prepared to vote on a 2 percent pay cut for all state workers earning more than $45,000 yearly.

Gov. Charlie Crist then vetoed the pay-cut language. Soon after, the Senate started increasing more salaries.

If I were an employer, I would prefer hiring an experienced worker at the higher salary rather than inexperienced worker at the low wages. Thank you Marc for the information about the Senators.
