Washington State Employees Back To 2011 Salaries

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - State employees won't be getting a raise this year. But as of July 1, they are getting back the 3-percent pay cut and decrease in hours they've been experiencing for the past few years.
    
The Olympian reports (http://is.gd/ckhTXy ) the new state budget brings pay for most state employees back to 2011 levels.
    
State pay is a complicated puzzle, but most workers will be eligible for 1 percent raises in July 2014 if state revenue recovers enough to cover a provision in their contracts.
    
Also, nearly 17,000 general-government workers become eligible to get step-pay raises of 2.5 percent this month if they have worked at least six years and are at the top of their pay range.
    
The state has about 59,000 employees all together.
