Daniels Authorizes Pay Hikes for Indiana State Workers

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels has approved performance-based pay raises for thousands of state workers.

There will be three tiers of raises: Three percent for those whose job performance meets expectations, five percent for those exceeding expectations and eight percent for workers who are evaluated as ‘outstanding.’

Daniels predicts about ten percent of state employees will get no raise for failing to meet expectations or being in need of improvement.

About 26,000 Indiana state workers are eligible for a performance-based increase. The state will spend $38 million for the pay hikes, which take effect in February.
