No pay for Fed Workers:Trump Administration Set to get raises


Washington, DC -- 
Hundreds of senior Trump political appointees are poised to receive annual raises of about $10,000 a year.

 

Washington Post is reporting while the partial government shutdown continues, while many federal workers go without a paycheck,  tomorrow, many in the Trump administration are set to get their pay raised. 

Washington Post Report in part:

The pay raises for Cabinet secretaries, deputy secretaries, top administrators and even Vice President Pence are scheduled to go into effect beginning Jan. 5 without legislation to stop them, according to documents issued by the Office of Personnel Management and experts in federal pay.


Cabinet secretaries, for example, would be entitled to a jump in annual salary from $199,700 to $210,700. Deputy secretaries would be entitled to a raise from $179,700 to $189,600. Others affected are under secretaries, deputy directors and other top administrators.


Some 800,000 federal employees, out of a workforce of 2.1 million, are in unpaid status because of the partial government shutdown that began last month. Of those, about 380,000 have been furloughed. Many others are working without pay, and just before the New Year, President Trump ordered a pay freeze for most federal workers, working or not.
