Classified staff raises could lift morale

I’m happy to see Staff Council undertake a resolution that encourages CU-Boulder to find (and fund) a mechanism that will allow classified staff to receive salary increases (CU Connections, Oct. 25).

Professional exempt staff and faculty have received salary raises in the last few years, but almost all classified staff salaries have remained stagnant since 2008!  Morale is low; salary increases could definitely help.
