AFSCME Florida President Vicki Hall on State Pay Increase

AFSCME Florida President and AFSCME International Vice President Vicki Hall said, "We applaud the leadership of both the House and Senate for historic increases for the state workers who provide the vital, essential services our communities need.  State workers are in need of both living wages to lift families out of poverty and enhanced compensation for professionals whose pay has not kept pace with comparable private-sector counterparts. I am constantly amazed by the professionalism and dedication our members demonstrate every day. These historic increases to starting pay and significant across-the-board pay raises are well deserved and much appreciated."
