Feb. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Federation of Government Employees National President
J. David Cox Sr. today issued the following statement in response to the announcement that President Obama will propose a 1% pay raise for federal employees in 2014:
President Obama's proposed 1% pay adjustment for 2014 is simply not enough. It is not enough to allow federal employees to make up lost ground from two-plus years of frozen pay. It is not enough to allow workers, most of whom earn very modest salaries ranging from
$24,000 to $70,000, to maintain living standards. And it is not enough to send a message with any kind of clarity that the administration values the federal workforce and doesn't believe it should continue to bear an enormously disproportionate share of deficit reduction.
