MARSHALL CO. â€”Â Law clerks working for county departments could soon be making nearly $6 more per hour.
Judge Dean Colvin asked Marshall County Council members to raise the pay range available to pay law clerks Monday.
â€śI canâ€™t compete anymore,â€ť said Colvin, adding that he keeps losing his clerks to better-paying positions.
The current county pay range for law clerks is between $11.37 and $13.08 per hour. Colvinâ€™s current clerk will be leaving at the end of the week for a job that pays $18 per hour.
