Will You Get a Pay Raise in 2014?

By • August 18, 2013 Comments

Based on recent events that have transpired, the prospects of a pay raise for 2014 are looking promising so far.

The Senate Committee on Appropriations recommended fully funding a pay increase for DoD, the President is on record as being in favor of a pay increase, and the House also voted to give a pay increase to the military which helps the case of pay parity.

On top of all of that, federal employees have been under a pay freeze since 2010, so supporters of a pay raise can also use that as evidence of why a raise should be given to the federal workforce.

But 2014 is still a few months off and a lot can happen between now and then.

So we want to know your thoughts – do you think will federal employees get a pay raise next year? How much of a pay increase should they get?
