State Employees To Get Pay Raises

Top performing state employees could receive an 8-percent raise, while most will receive 3-percent.

As one of his last acts in office, Governor Mitch Daniels announced Friday that the vast majority of state employees will soon receive a pay raise.

State employee paychecks didn’t get a boost in 2009 and 2010…but early in 2011 they saw a small, one-percent pay increase, and in 2012, their pay went up under the governor’s pay-for-performance model.

In February, roughly 90 percent of state employees will get raises, with the average salary going up about three percent. The highest performing workers — about five percent of state employees — will get an eight percent raise, while roughly 10 percent will receive a five percent pay hike.

The largest group of state workers – around 75 percent – get a three percent raise, while about ten percent won’t see their pay go up at all. Daniels’ pay-for-performance model has been in place since 2006.
