Re: Plagued by staffing shortages, Texas prisons bump up officer starting salaries 12 percent
I agree with you. I want to bring up another point. I just finished in service, (which sucked. Please bring back the 8ís), and the staff once again instructed us on the benefits of making the new boots feel like part of the family, welcome them into the fold. Apparently, this is will improve moral and deter turnover. This 12% raise in new boot pay will create a rift, a separation between those that are seasoned and the new boots. Evidence of this division is already apparent. Feelings of discontent amongst those that have DEDICATED their life and PERSEVERED regardless of the administrative b******* and the general atmosphere of a penitentiary. Where is the INTEGRITY you so preach upon?
