Workers get pay raises
Talk about wage freezes subsides
DIXON – No one in Lee County government is talking publicly about a wage freeze these days.
Tuesday, big County Board majorities approved raises for nonunion employees and union highways workers.
In 2011, when the County Board approved $1,000 pay hikes for nonunion employees, many said they would favor a wage freeze for all employees by the end of 2012. That’s because, starting next year, the county expects to lose $1 million a year in income from its contract with the owner of the Lee County Landfill.
