Steve Condrey: Federal Salary Plan System Needs Update

1 min read

BudgetSteve Condrey, Federal Salary Council chairman, believes the federal job grading system should be updated to address a widening pay gap between workers in the public and private sectors, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.

Jack Moore writes the council released data in late 2013 that indicates federal workers on average earn 35 percent less than similar employees in private companies.

“First you need to talk about creating an environment that’s attractive for people that would actually want to come here and work for the federal government,” Condrey told the station in an interview.

The GS system is comprised of 15 grade levels and each grade is divided into 10 step rates.
