State Employee started this petition to texas senators and

I am a state employee with a degree. I have worked for the state for years, but for some reason the State of Texas does not compensate it's employees with a comparable or livable wage. My children qualify for Government assistance for healthcare because of my wage, and when I have myself and my family on my insurance, I make less than minimum wage. Where I work is always short on Rn's and LVN's because they can make as much as $10/hour more on there base wages. The aides in my area make up to $4/hour more in the private sector. Even with the State of Texas benefits this is not a sustainable solution for it's employees. We want a wage we can live with and not have to work hours upon hours of overtime or have a second job just to make ends meet. Please help us Texas we love our jobs but we need Financial security.
