Pay Debate

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.

Closing the 'gap' gap

White-collar federal workers on average are either overpaid by about 16 percent or paid an average of 26.3 percent less compared to their private-sector counterparts. Those numbers confirm that there is a pay gap. But that's about it, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. Could they both be right? Or wrong?
