Hundreds rally in front of White House demanding an end to the discriminatory downgrade of VA employees

The downgrades are targeting the lowest pay grade levels within the agency, but the agency has failed to prove that they will improve the functionality or finances of the VA. Activists argued that these potential cuts could mean the difference between workers being above or below the poverty line.

“We want to make the community aware, make the country aware, and certainly get the attention of the Veterans Administration in that we’re not going to stand by and let them cut the bottom of the pay scale,” said Colleen Stewart, a VA nurse from Salisbury, N.C.
