(WASHINGTON) – The nation's largest union of federal employees, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), today praised the Senate for the FY09 Financial Services Appropriations Bill which includes a well deserved pay raise for federal workers.

“AFGE is grateful to Senate Appropriations Financial Services Subcommittee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-IL) for giving federal workers the help they need,” remarked AFGE National President John Gage. “With astronomical gas prices, food prices spiraling out of control and an economy that is sinking fast, this pay raise will help keep hard working federal workers afloat.”
