Civil Service Commission director Ann Soileau said Monday three options have been submitted to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s budget planners that could bring 3 percent to 10 percent pay raises to many workers..
State government could find filling jobs more and more difficult unless minimum pay increases, she said.
Soileau said she has received no word from the governor’s budget office on the proposals.
Merit increases of 4 percent annually go to most of the state’s 60,000 state Civil Service employees. Civil Service establishes job categories and pay ranges for jobs within them.
The Civil Service proposals would increase the minimum or entry level pay within those ranges
