💵 Penn State employees are experiencing an unusual delay in receiving their scheduled merit-based salary increases due to the Pennsylvania state legislature's postponement in approving the state-related universities' funding. The university, expecting over $250 million in state support, typically sees salary increases approved by July and implemented by late summer. However, this year's state budget has not been finalized, with the House passing the appropriation bill only recently and the state Senate not scheduled to reconvene until November 13. Penn State has assured that raises will be retroactive to July 1 once approved, but the process will take weeks due to the large number of employees. [Centre Daily Times via Yahoo]
