I think it is important for Missouri citizens to know that the Department of Health and Senior Services seems to be creating more upper management positions, paying salaries of $70,000 and up per year while the front line staff are being told they have to do more work with fewer staff. Those huge salaries could easily pay for two to three more frontline staff. There is not a need for more management positions. Missourians need more staff to work directly with the citizens it is obligated to help protect.
