Cardin, Van Hollen Cosponsor Bill to Give Federal Workers a Raise

February 2nd, 2017 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (both D-Md.) have signed on as original cosponsors to the Federal Adjustment of Income Rates (FAIR) Act, a bill that would provide federal employees with a 3.2 percent pay increase in 2018. The bill is designed to boost the pay of federal workers, who have endured $182 billion in cuts to pay and benefits through pay freezes, substandard pay raises, furloughs and increased pension contributions. Federal employees have sacrificed far more than their fair share. The FAIR Act was introduced this week with Senators Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i).
