Letter: College bonuses are disgrace

As president of the AFSCME Local 701 union whose members will receive no wage increase over two years, reduction in hours for many, if not all, and layoffs, I find it appalling that the presidents/chancellor(s) of state colleges received bonuses!

Students continue to pay large increases to attend these schools and yet there appears to have been enough "state" money for these bonuses.

In this economy, these bonuses are a disgrace to AFSCME, students and all residents of Minnesota.
