Trump eliminates pay raises for civilian federal employees
AXIOS – August 30, 2018: The article highlights that in a letter sent to House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday (August 30), President Trump announced that a majority of civilian federal employees will not receive pay increases next year, undoing the original 2.1% pay increase that was set to take effect in 2019.
The president explained the change is an effort “to put our Nation on a fiscally sustainable course, and Federal agency budgets cannot sustain such increases.” No change has been announced for pay increases of military troops, which are still on track to receive a 2.6% bump according to the Military Times, marking their biggest pay raise since 2009.
