Federal Employees To Learn A Basic Truth

President Obama has indicated that Federal Employees will now have a two-year wage freeze.

Apparently, the freeze also includes the traditional "automatic" cost-of-living increase that was to have been 1.4% this year. (As always, this freeze won't include the U.S. Congress, they'll get their COLA.)

Teachers in our school district never get a "cost of living" increase.

Welcome to our world, federal employees!

EdWonk's Note to federal workers: Unlike the teachers in our district, at least your take-home pay isn't going to be cut, so your paycheck isn't getting smaller like mine has for years...
