When Is A Raise Not A Raise? Only In Government

Is there a difference between a raise and an increase in salary for longevity and degree attainment? Apparently some in Madison believe so.

Even though “2,498 of 2,700 teachers got salary increases for longevity and degree attainment“, Ed Hughes, candidate for president of the Madison School Board believes teachers have not had a raise for years.

Unbelievable. Only in Madison. At least we hope only in Madison.
