The federal civilian workforce deserve a raise to keep up with rising costs of living. This bill would reverse the Trump administration’s pay freeze for federal civilian employees and give those workers a pay increase in line with what members of the military will receive.
The federal government is running a deficit, and as result there isn’t enough money to give the entire federal workforce a raise. The pay freeze for federal civilian employees should remain in effect, in part so that the members of the U.S. Armed Forces can get a raise.
