University must reprioritize pay increases

The University of Minnesota has faced difficult financial conditions in recent years, forcing it to make cuts.

Because of reduced funding and budget shortfalls, the costs of health care contributions will increase substantially in 2012 for University employees.

Despite this shortage, the head coach of the Gopher football team just received a substantial pay increase and will be paid a total of $8.4 million over the course of seven years.

Where did that money come from? As far as I know, no one else received a pay increase.

The University needs to straighten out its priorities and start making decisions that work for all employees.
