As Others Are Doing
CALEM, in presenting the proposal to raise the
& salaries of teachers in its public schools, to the
taxpayers at a special election to be held next Mon
day, December 8, is but following the lead of other
progressive communities throughout the country. -
Salem is following the lead of others ii this effort
to give teachers a living wage. Many states estab-'
lished large increases last year: New Mexico gave
30 tp 40 per cent increases; Colorado, 20 per cent;
Arizona, 25 per cent; South Dakota, 20 per cent;
Oklahoma, 15 per cent;, many counties in Wyoming
have minimums of $900 and $1,000. Cities, last year,
gaye large flat increases and without exception
raised their minimums. Butte, Montana has a
minimum of $1,200, has given each teacher $400 in
crease since 1917, and last year gave each teacher a
$100 bonus in addition. San Jose, California has a
minimum of $1,200, and last year granted a flat sum
of $500 per teacher. Fresno, California has a grade
minimum of $1,050, and last year gave a flat bonus
of $250. Blackfoot, Nampa, and Pocatello, Idaho,
have declared $1100 minimsms. Walla Walla, Wash
ington, has minimum of $850, and gave this year
Salem's minimum is $765.
