PRESIDENT FROZE FEDERAL PAY RAISE…. FOR THE NEXT 2 YEARS!!!
According to the white-house the pay freeze will save $2 billion for the remainder of FY 2011, $28 billion over the next five years, and more than $60 billion over the next 10 years. The freeze applies to all civilian federal employees, including those working for the Department of Defense. It does not include military personnel. According to the federal Census Bureau, as of 2008, the United States government had over 2.5 million full-time employees and close to 2.8 million employees both full-time and part-time. The greatest number of full-time civilians, 699,039, works in the defense/international relations field, while another 587,768 civilians works for the U.S. Postal Service.
Personally It’s all conservative politics…You see they ain’t mucking w/the Contracting Agencies, Members of Congress monies and others. “Folks” in the Government can still WRITE themselves up for and receive bonuses, according to the Washington Post… This is some bullshit…if you ask me – those folk at the top of the “food chain” the 100k and over are still gon’ get theirs! We want to hear from you the readers.
