Berry: claims about feds' pay 'unfair and untrue'

OPM says that it's unfair to compare federal workers' compensation with private sector workers at-large. Federal workers are specialized and have a higher degree of education, and only 11 percent of employees work in blue collar jobs. In addition, OPM director John Berry told Federal News Radio that the number of healthcare and technology professionals in the federal workforce grew by 50 percent over the last 30 years. The Cato Institute reports that federal employees rank in the top five sectors based on average annual pay.
