Starting this week, Wisconsin correctional officers and other state security officers are getting a pay increase of three-dollars an hour. W-B-A-Y reports the hike went into effect Sunday. The state is pumping up the paycheck at a time the Wisconsin Department of Corrections and Department of Health Services are severely short-staffed. State employees affected include correctional officers, sergeants, psychiatric care technicians, youth counselors, and supervisors. More than five-thousand Wisconsin state employees will see bigger paychecks.
