CONTROVERSY OVER THE RAISE FOR USF PRESIDENT JUDY GENSHAFT12/19/02
The campus of USF was rocked by the news that their president would be getting a 37% pay raise. This comes at a time when worker and professor salaries have been kept to 2% increases for the past few years. At the same time large increases are being proposed in state university tuitions, popular financial aid programs are being threatened with cuts, and other state universities are also sharply increasing pay for their presidents. Our guest, Bill McClelland, president of AFSCME Local 3342 which represents career service employees at USF. McClelland described the mood among campus workers and the legality of the president's pay increase.
