Portland City employees have been striking and have just been offered a 13% pay increase beginning in about 120 days.
In 2021, there were 5,618 state employees that brought home base pay of at least $100,000. That was a 23% increase from 2020.
These pay raises fit with the pattern during the early pandemic where government pay raises out performed all other categories as the above chart shows.
