"Penn State employees shouldn’t count on pay raises next year.
That was the message from President Graham Spanier when he spoke Tuesday to the Faculty Senate. He said he doesn’t want to rule out the possibility of pay increases and plans to watch closely what unfolds in the coming months, but he said such increases aren’t likely."
No doubt, we'll hear how "important we are to the University" and then hear off-handed comments that "we're lucky to have jobs" over the next couple months.
The University, which has gone on a decade-long spending and building binge, now decides the folks who should pay for it are the staff and students.
More on this later, I'm sure.
