Trump Celebrates Labor Day by Proposing Federal Employee Pay Freeze for 2019
At InformedFED we have been warning for over a year that the 2018 mid-term election cycle will likely historically prove to be among the most critical for federal employees. Federal employees have come under unprecedented attack under the Trump administration with the recent Executive Orders (since overturned by a Federal Judge) and a series of Republican proposals intended to not only freeze federal employee and benefits, but actually reduce them in the same manner as the recent pay cuts affecting Border Patrol Agents (though their own union was complicit in achieving those pay-cuts).
Per White House announcement: “across‑the‑board pay increases and locality pay increases will be set at zero.”
