Missouri State University giving raises to all 2,200 employees

Missouri State University is increasing pay for its 2,200 employees.

The MSU Board of Governors voted in favor of a plan to give all its employees a 1 percent cost-of-living increase, plus a $600 raise.

The pay increase follows a $700 one-time retention payment the Springfield school handed out in August.
