Trump to cut pay raises for government workers.....














LINK


quote:

President Trump sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Thursday announcing his intention to cut pay raises for civilian government workers.

In the letter, Trump cited his authority in times of “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare” to make adjustments to the 2018 pay schedule for federal employees.

Under the previous plan, workers were scheduled for a 1.9 percent bump. Trump will use his authority to lower that to 1.4 percent.

“We must maintain efforts to put our Nation on a sustainable fiscal course,” Trump wrote.

“A pay increase of this magnitude is not warranted, and Federal agency budgets could not accommodate such an increase while still maintaining support for key Federal priorities such as those that advance the safety and security of the American people.”

The military will really appreciate that with North Korea and all that going on.

Don't forget that all soldiers and sailors are government workers.

Link did not open for me, in case the information is different.

Ok I missed that.

Still, I would rather have a well paid diplomat addressing problems than a soldier!

Government emplouees should have excellent salaries so we can attract the cream of the crop.

Next on the chopping block needs to be government pensions.

Give them 401k's instead

For most Federal employees, it is a reduced pension, a 401K-type product and SS retirement. The old days of the 2.5% pension per year are almost gone - only folks with over 34 years are in that category.

The standard pension is 1% per year, which isn't necessarily all that and a bag of potato chips. Better than a lot of hardworking folks get in the private sector, but not what most folks think of for a government pension.

It's a pay increase "cut" - which is stereotypical government speak.
