(La Porte, IN) - Part-time workers for the La Porte County government will see a pay increase. Last night, the La Porte County Council voted to pay part-time employees anywhere from $13 to $15 an hour.
La Porte County Council President Randy Novak said any part-time current worker making less right now will be increased to at least $13 an hour. Novak said department heads would decide how much higher up the maximum to go with the hourly rate paid to each part-time employee.
“Anybody hired in will start in that range,” he said.
Novak said the idea is to attract more part-time applicants and create a pool of part-time employees who could be considered when full-time positions open up.
