South Carolina Legislature says Gov. Haley is underpaid


By Rick Brundrett | The Nerve

Gov. Nikki Haley and the state’s eight other constitutional officers are underpaid – some significantly less – compared to their counterparts in the country.

So says a study quietly authorized by the South Carolina General Assembly in 2012. The Nerve recently obtained a copy of the 47-page report, dated January 2013.

The report was done by the Hay Group, an international consulting company based in Philadelphia – the same firm that recommended that South Carolina lawmakers receive a pay raise of up to 192 percent, as first reported by The Nerve earlier this month.

As in the lawmaker pay report, the study for constitutional officers recommended that salary hikes be considered for all positions, though specific amounts were not given.
