Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia has introduced the Federal Adjustment of Income Rates Act, which would provide federal workers with a 5.3% pay raise next year. The American Federation of Government Employees, which represents 670,000 federal and D.C. government workers, proposed the 5.3% raise after President Obama announced a 1.6% increase in his 2017 budget. "Federal employees have gone far too long without a decent wage increase, resulting in a 6.5% drop in their standard of living since the start of the decade," AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. said.

The American Federation of Government Employees is calling on Congress to provide federal employees with a 5.3% pay raise next year to make up for years of no or low pay raises. President Obama's 2017 budget, released Feb. 9, would provide a 1.6% increase, which is not enough to keep up with inflation or make up for years of frozen wages. AFGE is the nation's largest federal employee union, representing 670,000 federal and D.C. government workers.
