Cardin Co-Sponsors Bill to Raise Federal Workers Salaries

May 29th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Senators Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) have co-sponsored a bill that seeks to raise the salaries of federal civilian workers by 3.3 percent next year. The Washington Post reports the two senators introduced the Federal Adjustment of Income Rates Act to help compensate for three years of frozen pay. Senator Cardin said that federal employees bore the brunt of the sequester, enduring furloughs and a three-year pay freeze. Many of those federal workers are employed in Cardin’s home state.
