39 percent raise proposed for Ore. Governor
Many of Oregon’s public servants will get huge raises next year if a commission tasked with examining their pay gets its way.
The Oregon Public Official’s Compensation Commission recommends raises ranging from 22 to 54 percent.
It calls for raises of 39-percent for the Secretary of State, the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Labor Commissioner.
I love the campaign commercials that compare how much we spend in Iraq (you know, that place we fight the terrorists so we can have seven years of no attacks on American soil) to how much healthcare/groceries it could buy a "working family."
How about how many bags of groceries could a working family buy with the raise money going to the our benefactors in state government?
