Obama to propose 1 percent pay hike for federal employees
Washington Post ^ | 2/08/13 | Joe Davidson

Posted on 02/09/2013 11:58:14 AM PST by Libloather

President Obama will propose a 1 percent pay raise for federal civilian employees in the administration’s fiscal 2014 budget proposal, the Washington Post has learned.

At the same time, the House plans to vote soon on legislation that would extend the current freeze on basic pay rates through the end of calendar 2013. The freeze was originally set for two years and scheduled to expire at the end of last year, but it was extended until a temporary budget measure expires next month.

When the measure expires, federal employees will receive a 0.5 percent raise for the remainder of 2013, unless blocked by congressional action.

Rude? Never have I seen so many nasty people complain about a profession that was available to everyone. I do believe that everyone at 18 or 22 was able to decide what they wanted to do when they began working. Some picked professions that are obviously repulsive to you. Well guess what? That is life. And yes the federal pay does suck! But again some of us chose it and are dealing with it. but when you silver spoon types get jealous, it is nauseating.

Of course - everyone in the United States is out of work thanks to this *sshat, so... raise federal salaries.

Makes an Obama kinda sense.

You’re just a pig poor-talking your own trough in the hopes that nobody notices and takes it away, napscoordinator. I suppose it’s human nature. A pretty base side of it and very surprising on this sie of all places, but human nature just the same.

You should be suffering a pay CUT right now, and a fairly substantial one, not a raise. Intead you’re out trying to bamboozle the yahoos about how little Federal employees such as yourself are paid.

Yes, we all agree, Federal employees are quite the bargain. Why, they’re the very model of fiscal restraint and probity. /s

Does this mean Obozo is actually going to send a budget plan to Congress next year?

Also this plan to increase pay 1% will go nowhere. It is simply fodder for the masses trying to convince the sheep that he is serious about spending cuts. Once 2014 rolls around his union buddies will get what they want.

So he intends us to spend even more, now that we’re almost to 17 trillion in debt?

INCREASE spending?

How many of you critics of feds are facing a 20% pay cut right now?

Out here in the private sector, we're facing not just pay cuts, FRiend, but JOB CUTS! It is freaking *brutal* out here! How much of the Federal work force has been laid off during the past five years?

If government employees really think we're so flush out here in the private sector, that we're paid more and that we have more job security than our Fed counterparts, then they should come out and join us here in private-sector wasteland!

Sure, threaten to withhold my SS and military retirement checks so you can pay your base. I’m OK with that! /s/
