Here is the Yahoo new article about this. If the US government is saying inflation is 3.3%, and they are known to be playing the numbers by excluding fuel and housing costs from their numbers, I'm wondering how high inflation really is.
As we apply that locally, if I was in the faculty union and had a "first, best and last offer" from the administrators that called for 3% each of the next several years, I would have to wonder what they were smoking. They can build a football stadium and can't give raises matching inflation?
I have already written so much about how stupid the SIUC administration is, that it is hard to say it again, but here goes. The SIUC administration is really stupid.
