OBAMA WANTS ANOTHER PAYRAISE FOR FEDERAL EMPLOYEES
# OF FEDERAL EMPLOYEES MAKING $150,000+
The number of federal employees making more than $150.000.00 has doubled since Obama has been in office. In other words, in the past two years. Federal employees received a 3.5% in 2008, 3.9% pay raise in 2009 and a 2% pay raise for 2010 and now a pay raise of 1.4% for 2011. Meanwhile 9.6% (broader unemployment closer to 17%) of Americans are unemployed and many of those who are working have not seen a pay raise for years or have taken pay cuts.
