Federal Worker Pay to Increase 1%

BudgetThe government funding resolution that ended the shutdown has raised the wage of recently furloughed federal employees by 1 percent, Federal Times reported Thursday.

Sean Reilly writes President Barack Obama could implement the salary hike on Jan. 1, which would represent first across-the-board increase since 2010.

Matt Biggs, legislative and political director at the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers, told Federal Times the federal law mandates the president to grant the wage hike to workers paid under the general schedule.

Biggs added lawmakers have yet to pass a measure in order to raise the salary of blue-collar employees receiving their pay under the federal wage grade schedule, according to the report.
