California’s state scientists perform critical functions for Californians like protecting the public from life-threatening diseases, safeguarding our wildlife and abundant natural resources and protecting our water from toxic waste and pollution. It’s Important Work that Deserves Fair Pay. But for years, state scientists have been grossly underpaid. Data shows that state scientists make 30-40% less than their counterparts in other public agencies at the county and federal level, and the private sector. California’s state scientists are urging Governor Brown and the Legislator to address this salary inequity. Please show your support by contacting your legislator and Governor Brown and demand they provide Salary Equity Now for State Scientists.
