Make raises for everyone
“What worries me is that if the funds are discretionary, politics can possibly enter into it,” Kostelka said. “I hate to say that would be the result, but it is possible.”
We agree with Kostelka. While we hate to imagine our area universities allowing politics to enter into their decision on who and who does not get a raise, we do realize humans are fallible. What would have put most minds at ease would have been for the Board to decide for every collegiate faculty member to receive a portion of the pay raise.
