2% Employee Pay Increase Inadequate

The proposed 2% merit pay state employee increase often doesn’t even cover increased rents or property taxes.The State is not broke. For example, internet sales tax money is put in a special fund, not included to replace lost sales taxes from “brick and mortar” businesses. I am proposing an additional temporary 2% increase to remain as long as the housing crisis continues. You may have other ideas too. I urge you to contact legislators and share this with state employees that are concerned. Comments can be sent to rlockett@lso.idaho.gov
