Rep. Peters Votes to Support Civilian Federal Employee Raise
Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) voted to support a 2.6 percent pay raise for federal civilian employees. Military service members have already received a 2.6 percent pay raise that went into effect on January 1, 2019. Rep. Peters issued the following statement after the House passed the funding:
“Across the country, federal workers—many of whom were hurt by the recent shutdown—have already experienced pay freezes and hiring freezes in past years. This modest pay raise alleviates the cost of inflation, and will encourage the federal government to be competitive with private industry. I voted to provide pay raises to federal workers because they deserve better than the hardship that shutdowns inflicted upon them—and the country—by the president,” said Rep. Peters.
