3 Percent . . . Will Have To Pay The Rent

Missouri state workers will get a 3 percent pay raise next year -- not the flat raise passed by the House and supported by union workers.

House and Senate budget negotiators agreed on the 3% pay hike Tuesday, to begin with the new state budget July 1.

The House had supported a flat $1,056 pay raise for all employees. That would have given lower-income workers more money than the 3 percent increase backed by the Senate and Gov. Matt Blunt. Watch what some workers think of the 3 percent plan HERE.
