The third of six surveys shows support for teacher pay raises, and a minimum wage increase across the Bayou state.

Researchers in the Public Policy Research Lab at LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication found the majority of Louisianans, 88 percent, support raising teacher salaries, and the majority, 81 percent also support an increased minimum wage of $8.50 an hour.

The survey is aimed at revealing how people from all areas of the state view Louisiana government and its policies.

The survey, conducted by PPRL interviewers between Feb. 15 and March 7, polled 917 Louisianans age 18 or older from across the state.
