One university president is voluntarily cutting his own salary so some of his employees can make more money.

KSU’s Raymond Burse will get 25% less income so 24 of his lowest paid employees like custodial staff and groundskeepers, can make $10.25 an hour

Some had been making as little as $7.25 the current federal minimum wage.

Burse, the interim president who took over in June, said it was easier for him to cover the $90,000 cost of the raises than to add another burden to the institution.
