When it comes to figuring out whether federal workers are overpaid or underpaid both sides need to remember the basic carpenters rule: Measure twice, cut once. How come? Sometimes when doing complex math even the experts get it wrong, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says — even rocket scientists.
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?

Tom Shoop, the editor-in-chief of Government Executive magazine, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss a new CBO study on federal pay.
Federal employees are paid 16 percent more in total compensation — a combination of pay and benefits — than their private-sector counterparts, according to a new Congressional Budget Office report. The pay and benefits gap was not evident across the board, but stratified by educational attainment.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the pay gap is 26.3 percent, up from 24 percent last year.
