Patrick’s salary slashing campaign

CommonWealth magazine’s cover story in the new summer issue, “Salary divide,” looks at Gov. Patrick’s move to slash salaries among top officials in state government.  Last week, the Globe reported that Transportation Secretary Jeff Mullan will leave by the end of the year after being rebuffed in his request to Patrick for a raise. Is Patrick’s new hard line on salaries hurting the effort to recruit and retain top talent in state government? CommonWealth editor Bruce Mohl and policy analyst Charlie Chieppo consider that question in CommonWealth’s latest Face to Face video conversation, which you can view here.
