Biden Tries to Boost Pay for Federal Bureaucrats by Highest Rate Since Carter

President Joe Biden’s $7 trillion tax-and-spending plan would boost pay for federal bureaucrats by 5.2%, their highest raise in decades and more than private sector employees have gotten.

The proposed 5.2% hike for government workers contrasts with private sector employees, who earned an average pay raise of 4.4% from February 2022 through February 2023, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. 

“This is one of many examples in Biden’s budget where he prioritizes the woke and bloated bureaucracy over hardworking families,” House Budget Chairman Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, told The Daily Signal in a written statement.
