Kentucky State University President Asks For Paycut To Allow Raises

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The interim president at Kentucky State University has asked for a pay cut in order to give raises to 24 employees at the low end of the institution's pay scale.

The State Journal (http://bit.ly/UGo2Bc) reports the school's board of regents recently approved the request to pay Raymond Burse $259,744 annually instead of $349,869.

The change will allow the school to increase the salary of 24 employees to $10.25 an hour.

Burse says he saw the action as necessary since some of the employees were making as little as $7.25 an hour.

Burse was named as interim president at the Frankfort school in June after former President Mary Sias retired in May.
