Some state workers get bonuses after three years of cuts, furloughs

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Administrators for the Idaho Legislative Services Office and the Department of Finance have approved cash bonuses for dozens of staffers at the close of the fiscal year. Records obtained Friday by The Associated Press show 102 staffers will be getting one-time bonuses on the final pay day scheduled for June 24. The bonuses range from $1,300 to as high as $5,000 for employees of those two agencies. Smaller bonuses have been approved for staffers in the Idaho Appellate Public Defender's Office and the Idaho Commission for Libraries. This year's round of bonuses is the first approved in several fiscal years for state workers. The pay perks also come in the wake of three years of significant budget cuts among state agencies and several years of state employee layoffs and furloughs; click below for a full report.
