Despite raises, assistant prosecutors in Summit County are finding their pay doesn't quite compare to those in the private sector.
During the past two years, the Beacon Journal reports 16 assistant prosecutors have left during the past two years-- the majority for higher paying jobs.
With a starting salary of $44,000, Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh tells the newswpaper that even with raises, the assistants salaries are "so much lower" than a typical attorney.
So far this year, Walsh says she's handed out $64,000 in raises targeted at lower-paid assistants.
