Pay Raise for Federal Workers

The nation's largest union of federal employees, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), today thanked President Bush for signing an executive order giving a 3.9 federal pay raise for Federal employees. Congress earlier this year passed the pay raise, which AFGE supported.

“Despite the incredible obstacles placed against them during the Bush administration, federal workers still managed to provide superior public service to Americans. Federal civilian workers support our troops overseas, issue Social Security compensation, inspect our food and provide regulations to protect our workplaces, our environment and our drinking water. These dedicated public servants most certainly deserve a pay increase,” said AFGE National President John Gage.
