Interim KSU president accepts lower salary to give 24 workers raises

Raymond Burse returned to Kentucky State University as interim president under the condition that his annual salary be adjusted so other employees would get raises.
Burse, who headed the public land-grant institution from 1982 to 1989, was slated to receive roughly $350,000, but he asked to make his annual salary just under $260,000, according to CBS News.

The $90,000 originally slated for his compensation package now will be used to boost the pay of 24 workers at the school. Some of those workers earned the federal minimum wage of $7.25.
