AN ACT TO AMEND OFFICER SALARIES IN RESPONSE TO THE STATE MINIMUM WAGE INCREASES

PURPOSE: To amend Chapter 4.80 of the MSA Bylaws to keep them up to date with current minimum wage laws, so that MSA can maintain a competitive pay rate.

WHEREAS: The previous stipends of MSA officers were $0.10 higher than the previous minimum wage (of $7.25/hr) so that MSA may remain a competitive employer; AND

WHEREAS: This act updates the current pay rates in response to the increase in minimum wage increases; AND

WHEREAS: There is enough money in the wages budget to cover the changes without having to relocate money; AND
