Lowe Files Adds Another Claim To Her Case

Former Idaho Transportation Director Pam Lowe, whose wrongful-termination lawsuit against the state is now pending in federal court, filed an amended claim today adding an additional claim to her case: that ITD hired a male to replace her and is paying him over $20,000 a year more than they were paying her.

Here's the story from the 'Eye on Boise' blog.

When new Director Brian Ness was hired, ITD said they offered him more pay than Lowe because he negotiated a salary that’s a substantial increase from his former salary in Michigan. Do you think this is a fair practice or should there be a set sarting wage for the position as well as 'step increases', just like in most other government positions?
