White House proposes pay increase for federal workers

• Washington Post
The White House will propose a 0.5 percent pay increase for civilian federal employees as part of its 2013 budget proposal, according to two senior administration officials familiar with the plans.

The modest across-the-board pay jump would be the first increase for federal workers since before a two-year freeze began in late 2010. Raises for within-grade step increases and promotions have continued during the freeze.

There's Obumma. Trying to buy votes again. Why the hell should we give a raise to people, watching porn instead of doing their job's. They already have all the benefits they need. Why if the people at the SEC were doing their job in the first place, all these bailouts might have been unnecessary.
