CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Gov. Justice announced that he has approved 15% salary increases for direct services employees of the West Virginia DHHR’s Bureau for Social Services.
The increases are anticipated to be effective on June 18.
“I told you we’d get this done and we got it done without spending any excess money,” Gov. Justice said. “I always say we need to mind the store and we’ve done it the right way. As a result, we’re now able to compensate these people that are doing incredible work. I appreciate all the great work by Secretary Crouch and so many people at DHHR that have put in a lot of good licks on this.”
The Governor went on to say that plans are also in the works to publish a child welfare dashboard on June 1, showing information on CPS placements, referrals, and workloads, as well as other important information.
