As 2022 kicked off, the Shreveport City Council approved a 13% pay raise across the board for city employees. That final vote back in January was a 5-2 vote to approve the increases. The only two Council members who voted against the raise were John Nickelson and Grayson Boucher.

Those 13% raises went into effect in February, and were reflected starting on City employees' February 15th paychecks.

Once these raises were complete, the salaries across City employees transformed in a massive way. As of January 1st, 2022 there were 38 City of Shreveport employees who were making more than $100,000 a year. There are now over 50 employees who have reached that threshold. There are now over 70 City employees who make more than $95,000 a year in their salary, with the potential to quickly surpass $100,000 with overtime, bonuses, or other individual bumps.

After the raises were settled in place, a Public Records Request was submitted to see the public information on the new City employee salaries across the board. This was necessary, because there was rampant confusion about the 13% increases.

The confusion was over which employees would receive the raise, and how much it would be for particular departments. Some City employees believed they were only going to receive a 6% raise. While some that are paid by the City of Shreveport did not qualify at all. So it was important to allow the dust to settle, and a few pay cycles to pass, to make sure the numbers correctly reflected the increases.

Here are the post-raise salaries:
