DeLeo grants 3% raises to all House employees

Despite weaker-than-expected tax collections that have the state weighing a new round of budget cuts, House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo last week handed out 3 percent raises to all 460 House employees and Senate President Therese Murray gave 3 percent raises to a smaller handful of staff.

DeLeo’s office said the raises, which the speaker can grant at his own discretion, were justified because House employees have not seen a pay increase since September 2008. House employees received letters notifying them of the raise last week.
