Washington (CNNMoney) - President Obama plans to propose a 1% pay hike for civilian federal workers in his budget proposal for 2014.
The White House's Office of Management and Budget officials briefed federal labor leaders late Friday on the proposed pay hike.
With an already top heavy Federal government, let us now increase the debt by increasing federal wages, while middle class taxpayer struggle forward.
Not if you want to cut Social Security. No pay hikes for anyone in the Gubmint. And take those back from Congress.
and they just cancelld a battle group that was already underway for deploymnet. recalled them home and told them maybe in a few months they will leave
First create jobs...
Is this the same president that says we don't have a spending problem? Mr. President, we don't have the money to give the bureaucrats a raise without China giving their permission.
Is he completely and totally insane?
He stands at the podium, and attacks the Republicans about raising revenue, while he is in the back room, scheming to give the increased revenue away to his cronies?????/
More BS from the big spender in charge I guess when he gave himself, The House, and Senate a (much more than 1%) a raise he forgot about the little people oh that's right it doesn't make a difference anymore you re-elected the liar again.
A pay hike for civil service workers, reduced pensions, and a pay cut for active duty military personnel?
A good many civil service jobs not very demanding and certainly not in harm's way presently pay far more than
the highest enlisted ranks earn with forty years of service! Reason has indeed left us and fled to brutish breasts.
Thank you. Gdubglenn
What percentage did Congress get? Bet it was more than 1%.
About time. My husband hasn't had a raise in years.
BTW – members of congress should have their pay reduced by at least 20% since they don't work and just put speed bumps on the road to discovery.
