Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf increases pay for top staff members’ salaries

Gov. Tom Wolf gave several of his top staff members double-digit pay increases following his November re-election.

Wolf’s office defended the increases as necessary to bring government pay in line with their private sector counterparts.

According to Penn Live, which first reported the story, Wolf’s office gave double-digit pay increases to nine employees, including five deputy chiefs of staff, who now receive $148,069 per year, and three deputy press secretaries, who currently earn $117,790. The staff members received raises between $25,000 to $33,000 per year.
