Evers Proposes Raising Minimum Wage for State Employees


Governor Tony Evers is proposing raising the minimum wage for state employees to $15. The Evers’ administration released its 2019-21 state employee compensation plan Friday. The plan calls for raising all permanent state workers’ minimum wage to $15 an hour starting on June 7th of 2020. It also calls for a two-percent across the board salary increase in each year of the biennium, and raises for prison guards. The entire package is expected to cost $84.15 million. The plan is subject to legislative approval. The legislature’s finance committee has already authorized money to cover the 2% raises and the raises for prison guards.
