Pete Illoway has been employed by both the federal government and state government and believes that the proposed step pay plan is the most fair and equitable. He does not believe that a person doing the same job in one agency should be paid differently in another agency just because one agency has more or different funds. Equal pay for equal work and a plan that spells out what's expected to get to the next level.
