$1,000 bonus sought for Oklahoma state employees
The bonus would help state workers, many of whom who have not had a pay raise since 2006, while legislators determine how to develop a market-based pay system. A key lawmaker calls across-the-board pay raises a relic from the past.
A state workers group is seeking a one-time bonus of $1,000 for state employees, who haven’t had an across-the-board pay increase in more than six years.
Sterling Zearley, executive director of the Oklahoma Public Employees Association, said the bonus would go to workers who meet or exceed standards set by their state agencies.
