Austin Community College Employees Need a 10% Pay Raise! Let's Make it Happen!

Austin Community College Employees Need a 10% Pay Raise!

Just one snapshot of why employees need a raise is that from budget year 2016 to draft budget 2023, the budget request for Adjunct Faculty has remained flat at 30 million dollars with zero increase. In that same time period Administrator compensation has risen from 6 million to 10 million dollars. Revenues for ACC have gone from $313M in 2016 to $464M for the next budget year. Property taxes, rent, food, childcare costs (availability), gas and many other things are getting more expensive by the day, and employee wages aren't reflecting these increases.

For ALL ACC employees to maintain their current standard of living, a 10% pay raise is absolutely necessary.

Austin Community College Trustees need to know how important this matter is to their employees. Change doesn't happen by itself.
