State employee pay increase OK'd by Senate
ST. PAUL - Minnesota state employees will receive raises, in some cases for the first time in years, if the House agrees with the Senate.
Senators Monday approved 43-22 pay raises of 3 percent this year and again next year for most state workers.
"More than half of our state employees received zero percent increase," Sen. James Metzen, D-South St. Paul, said, because of a struggling economy. "These state employees helped us get through the recession."
