Statement by Chairman John Zody on Senate Proposal To Raise Wages of State Elected Officials

STATEMENT BY CHAIRMAN JOHN ZODY ON SENATE PROPOSAL TO RAISE WAGES OF STATEWIDE ELECTED OFFICIALS

“Only two weeks into a new legislative session, Statehouse Republicans are pushing to raise their own salaries. While wages for working Hoosiers continue to fall behind the rest of the nation, when will this group understand that Indiana will only truly get ahead when we focus on paying better wages to those with the skills to do the work? The out-of-touch notion that statewide elected officials deserve a raise without working to increase the wages of everyday Hoosiers is appalling. We can do better than this,” said Zody.
