Wage grade federal employees will see a 1% pay increase with the spending bill now being signed into law.
The $1.1 trillion spending bill unveiled Monday night includes a 1% pay increase for workers under the wage grade system.
How does the federal pay raise compare to the average private sector raise for 2014? It is complicated but here are some broad numbers. The best performing employees in the private sector will see a 2014 pay increase of about 4.6%.
The president has issued an executive order that will give federal employees an across-the-board pay raise of 1% “on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after January 1, 2014.”
Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-PA) has introduced legislation that would ensure that the percentage increase in rates of basic pay for Wage Grade (WG), or hourly, employees is equivalent to the percentage increase received by other federal employees in the same pay locality.
