Kentucky State University’s interim president, businessman Raymond Burse, slashed his salary by $90,000 in order to raise the salary of the school’s 24 lowest paid employees by as much as 40 percent.

By reducing his own annual salary, he was able to give 24 custodial workers and groundskeepers a pay hike that took them from $7.25 an hour to $10.25 an hour.
