Here’s How Much Your Pay Is Increasing by Location

Categories: Pay, The Insider

President Obama’s decision to boost the average federal employee pay raise to 2.1% in January means you will get an increase ranging from 1.63% to 2.88%, depending on where you work.

The 2017 raise is divided into two parts: an across-the-board increase of 1.0%, and an average locality raise of 1.1%. Employees who work in locations where the wage gap between federal and non-federal employees is larger will receive a larger portion of the locality raise
