BATON ROUGE — Louisiana’s civil service agency is pushing a $46 million plan to boost pay and rework salary scales for rank-and-file state workers, hoping to shrink turnover rates and agency costs associated with lost employees.

The proposal would include an across-the-board 2 percent pay hike for more than 38,000 state government workers and adjust the minimum salary ranges for jobs. In exchange, the annual 4 percent pay raises allowed for workers with positive performance evaluations would be discarded for a different type of sliding scale pay increase system.

Byron Decoteau, Louisiana’s civil service director, said high turnover rates cost agencies millions
