Erwin gets 11% pay raise

Postby Shorty » Sat Aug 17, 2013 9:42 pm

Walker uses trickery to reward his loyal followers, while the other workers get a measly 1% slap-in-the-face raise.

Move to ghost job and back gives Capitol Police chief big raises ... 63431.html

" Gov. Scott Walker's administration rewarded the new hardline Capitol Police chief and his top deputy with double-digit pay raises earlier this year after moving the pair on paper to phantom jobs for two weeks and then back to their real posts.

Chief Dave Erwin — who has overseen a crackdown on Walker protesters at the statehouse — received an overall salary hike of 11.7%, to $111,067 a year, the same rate as his predecessor. That amounts to an $11,680 annual raise. That hefty raise was possible only because Walker officials transferred Erwin on Feb. 5 to a ghostposition in the state Department of Administration, according to a copy of the transfer letter obtained by the Journal Sentinel. Then, on the same day, he was shuffled back to his real job as head of the Capitol Police force."

If the police job was vacant, did they go through a proper recruiting process?
