GREEN BAY (AP) - Academic staff across the University of Wisconsin system received a total of $17.3 million in extra duty pay last year, after lawmakers lifted a limit on academic overtime. The overage, also called overload, rose 18 percent across the university system for the 2013-2014 school year, Green Bay Press-Gazette Media reported. Salary data shows 43 professors received at least $20,000 in overages, compared with two professors who received that amount or more the year before.
