The Governor is mean-spirited for believing that disciplined State employees should not get a raise
In the private sector this would be considered an occasional wage or salary increase, and most of those are conditional on the employee maintaining a good work record. That means that up to now, most State employees have just gotten a raise whenever the Legislature voted that one should be given across the board. Ordinary citizens might be interested to know that the condition of good conduct was never imposed on the raises State employees received in the past. In the private employment world, there are words for Governor Haslam's "mean-spirited" raise policy-very lenient.
