Gov. John Kasich claimed “state employees are actually going to get a pay raise”. Politifact calls this statement False:

Despite Nichols explanations, there is no pay raise. State workers will be getting more money in their paychecks, as Nichols noted. But that’s not because they’ll be getting paid more for their time.

Those increases are a result of them working more days at the same rate of pay. When the furloughs end, state workers will no longer be forced to take unpaid days off from work.

Obviously this won’t surprise Plunderbund readers. We’ve documented dozens of Kasich’s lies already.

And it shouldn’t surprise PD readers either. Kasich is up to 7 Half True, 3 Barely True and 5 straight up False statements on Politifact.
