It’s Time To Consider Total Compensation For Government Employees

The President’s budget includes a 1.9% pay increase for federal employees in 2018. A Democrat wants a 3.2% increase in 2018. That’s all fine and they are modest increases … except when you consider that public employees have a total compensation package about 44% higher than average working Americans who are footing the bill.

Oops, sorry, I meant to take it from another pocket

How many working Americans do you know who have a generous pension, plus a savings plan, good health benefits paid mostly by the employer and more in benefits?

It’s time to consider the bill average taxpayers are expected to pay and look at total compensation and keep government total compensation in line with working Americans.

Politicians criticize executive pay and in doing so they include total compensation not just salary. That’s what we should be doing here.

  1. Federal employees should get the same COLA that SS and military retirees received in Jan .3%.

    “It’s time to consider the bill average taxpayers are expected to pay and look at total compensation and keep government total compensation in line with working Americans.”

    I agree, but the biggest problem is the 20 trillion dollars in debt and growing. The average taxpayer is not paying for these increases, we are just adding it to the debt. All increases that are not paid for with new taxes or cuts in other spending should be denied.
