Teachers, state employees pay hike?

December 19, 2003


Albany-- Georgia school teachers and other employees might get pay raises next year.

Tax collections are up, so Democrats hope to increase state worker's salaries at least one percent next fiscal year.

Albany State Senator Michael Meyer von Bremen says, "Now we are possibly going to have excess we are not going to have a big bundle but if we have some excess money we can look at distributing it for the people who really make the sacrifices to Georgians here."

A one percent pay hike would cost the state 100 million dollars.
