The Dispatch reported today that Kasich has also increased the salaries of many of his Cabinet members – especially those of his closest friends and allies.

OBD Director Tim Keen got a 19% bump up to $150K and Mary Taylor, who will be receiving pay from her job as head of the Department of Insurance instead of at the lower Lt. Governor rate, is getting a bump of 17% to the same $150K amount. We can only assume this was done to keep Taylor and Keen from seeking better paying jobs in the private sector.

Some of the other cabinet members got small salary adjustments which seem reasonable. But the Directors of Health and Mental health got pretty hefty cuts (22.4% and 7.8%).

Pay raises for his pals. Cuts for everyone else. Sounds about right for Governor Kasich.

    And it’s only the second week of the Administration.

    Well, you have to pay people more so they won’t go into the private sector although the way they are running things they are the private sector with us footing the bill .

    They don’t work for us. They only work for rich people and corporate persons we just pay their salary, are told to STFU, keep working because we are so lazy.
