Earlier today we posted a list of the salaries for Kasich’s staff showing his closest friends and advisors would be getting huge pay increases compared to their counterparts in Strickland’s office.
I only included the people who have been assigned positions in the Governor’s office. But there are another 35 positions that still need to be filled. I’ve included a list of the unfilled positions below along with the expected salary.
It turns out that everyone isn’t getting a pay raise. Especially the people at the low end of the pay scale. The thing that jumps out at me immediately is the mail room staff.
According to the list, Kasich’s people are planning to pay two mail room employees $12.02/hr or $25,000 a year.
Under Strickland these same two mail room employees made $31,990 and $27,997 per year respectively. That’s a 21% DECREASE in pay for the mail room staff. While his Chief of Staff is getting a nearly 30% increase.
John Kasich’s working-class, mailman Dad would be very proud.
