New Bill Seeks 3.2% Federal Employee Pay Raise for 2018

1 min read

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Virginia) has introduced a bill that aims to increase the salary of federal employees by up to 3.2 percent in 2018, Government Executive reported Tuesday.

Eric Katz writes the Federal Adjustment of Income Rates Act seeks a 2 percent boost to federal workers’ base pay and a 1.2 percent average increase to locality pay.

In December 2016, former President Barack Obama approved a 2017 pay raise of 2.1 percent for the government’s civilian employees.

The report said Democrat lawmakers introduced a similar measure last year to give employees a 5.3 percent raise in efforts to close a gap between federal and private sector wages but Congress did not consider the proposal.

This story was originally published on February 1, 2017.
