The most dumbfounding part about civilian Federal employees getting a 1.3 percent pay raise isn’t that they are getting the raise, but that according to The Washington Post:
It prevents what would be a much higher raise from being paid under the complex laws governing federal pay raises should no raise number be enacted into law by the end of the year.
Good work if you can get it.
