Why Delaware is giving $20,000 and higher pay hikes to top officials making over $100K

From :Delaware News Journal

Delaware plans to give salary increases of more than $20,000 a year to 20 state officials by 2025.

That’s according to a January report from the six-member Delaware Compensation Commission, a low-profile group of business leaders and former government staffers who set salary increases for the governor, his Cabinet, judges, lawmakers and other high-ranking state officials.

It’s the first time in 16 years that the commission has been able to get lawmakers’ approval to give raises to the officials. They say the increases are necessary so that Delaware can be competitive in hiring and keeping good candidates for the jobs.

Over the next few years, 38 officials will get gradual pay increases each amounting to thousands of dollars, and 34 of those 38 get a raise of more than $10,000, according to the report. Read more: https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/politics/2021/06/09/delaware-state-workers-salaries-pay-in
