I clearly should be an administrator in education!
A group of WSU employees has released a petition addressed to Dr. Kirk Schulz, president of WSU, outlining a plan to save the university millions of dollars by cutting pay for WSU administrators making more than $100,000.00 a year. The petition, which has been signed by more than 40 WSU professors, is a response to WSU’s current plans to address its $30,000,000.00 deficit by cutting positions and pay for some of the lowest paid employees in the WSU system.
The petition notes that currently, 70WSU administrators make more than $200,000.00 a year, substantially more than the annual salary of governor Jay Inslee. Current plans to balance the WSU budget by cutting $10,000,000.00 a year over three years leave administrative salaries untouched.
Residents of the Washington State, current and former university employees, and students and alumni are invited to sign the petition, which is available at https://sites.google.com/site/financeproposalwsu/
