Letter to the Editor on MnSCU Bonuses
There's a better use for the money at MnSCU
I have an excellent idea: The personnel at the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system who received "bonus incentives" (Star Tribune, Sept. 17), if they had any honor, would return them to assist in the pain of budget reductions.
Generally speaking, those who received these bonuses are some of the highest-paid people in the system and probably can live quite comfortably without this additional unnecessary compensation. It is interesting to note that the bonus paid to Chancellor James McCormick is an amount greater than many AFSCME members earn in an entire year.
LARRY HENNIS, ST. PETER, MINN.
The spirit of these remarks is applicable also to the situation at the U of M.
