Federal employee pay has been a target in cost-cutting efforts by the President and Congress, aided by a public perception of feds as overpaid "fat cats." Claims about public vs. private pay have swung widely - from the Federal Salary Council's data that shows feds are paid 24 percent less than the private sector, to a Cato Institute report that says feds are paid double the private sector. What's the reality? Federal News Radio brings you interviews and analysis on the federal pay debate.
Legislative roundup: What feds should expect when Congress returns to work
Friday - 8/24/2012, 11:07pm EDT
From changes to retirement contributions, to an extended pay freeze, to sequestration, there are many potential changes on the horizon affecting federal employees.
After a month off, Congress returns on September 10th for a few short weeks before leaving to focus on the election.
In that time, what should federal employees expect to see coming out of Congress?
Joining host Jenny Mattingley to answer that question are three legislative representatives from the federal community.
Bruce Moyer, representing the National Association of Postal Supervisors and the National Association of Assistant U.S. Attorneys, Maureen Gilman of the National Treasury Employees Union and Jessica Klement of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association will share their perspectives on legislation to watch and the big picture on Capitol Hill as it relates to federal employees.
