Jefferson County has paid a quarter of a million dollars to discover what many county employees already suspected: They’re underpaid.
The study, which ended up costing a total of $245,000, was presented less than a week before the Board of Commissioners will meet to revise the county’s proposed 2010 budget.
Implementing pay adjustments for employees who earn less than market wages could cost between $107,000 and $1.4 million per year, depending on which groups would be selected for raises and how close to market rates they would be paid.
