State of Oregon Nurses Tool for Calculating Pay Cut Proposal

If you are a state employee and would like to know how much the state's current bargaining proposals would cost you, here's the tool to do that task.

At the bottom of this page, there is a link to an ominously named "Pay Cut Calculator."  Here's how to use it:

  • First off, this is an Excel file, so you must have a newer version of Microsoft Excel on your computer for it to work.
  • Open the file. It is pre-set to show the effects of the cuts for someone making a salary of $5,400 per month. You'll note it calculates the dollar amount of eliminating the 6 percent PERS pick-up, furlough days (or a pay deduction) equivalent to another 3 percent and the state's proposal for sharing in the health care premium costs. You'll see actual numbers, percentages and even a bar graph.
  • If you get an error message when trying to open, try again and select the "save" option, save the file on your desktop or elsewhere and then open it from there.
  • To see how the state's proposals would impact you, click in box 3B, and change "5400" to whatever your base monthly salary is. Once you've entered your salary, simply move the cursor over to the right to any empty area and click, and all of the numbers, percentages and the bar graph will change to reflect your circumstances.
