Federal GS Pay Raise in 2010 to Increase 2%

Federal GS Pay Raise in 2010 to Increase 2%

GovCentral

The federal civilian workforce will receive a 2 percent pay increase in fiscal 2010 under the Obama administration’s proposed budget.

This is a significant percent decrease from the previous 3.5% and 3.9% increases in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

The administration has cited this lower percentage increase as reflective of the current economic crisis. Such a measure will make federal pay and benefit practices more in line with what workers in the private sector are experiencing.

Remember, as with the GS Pay Scale system in years past, individual workers may get more or less based on their locality, or on whether or not they receive promotions.

    Some folks are soooo darn greedy. We (civil svc employees) should all be thankful for any pay increase; especially us under NSPS. A few of the prior inputs are the half- "a-word's" that don't do jack, but complain anyway. Three cheers for the Pres. for even pushing the agenda of across the board pay raise.

    We will enjoy it! People should be thankful to even still have a job! Increase is always better than decrease! The ultimate decision is left up to God and not man

    2 percent sounds low but consider yourself still having a job compare to others. In my humble opinion i'm thankful for what I have.

    How absurd to say salaries are rising when in the past they were at 3.9%. Just say that salaries in 2010 are expected to decline like you did in your last article. I hope it matches the inflation increase.

    my suggestion would be to build strong alliances and don't burn any bridges. I started out at census and having a good solid working relationship with my supervisor proved to be very helpful
