Trump Quietly Slashed Pay Raise For Federal Workers,

Before Claiming U.S. Economy Best "In History"

February 12, 2020

 

"In a move that drew outrage from labor unions and progressives, Donald Trump this week quietly took steps to slash a scheduled pay raise for millions of federal workers from 2.5% to 1% due to supposed concerns about “keeping the nation on a fiscally sustainable course.”

 

Slate‘s Elliot Hannon wrote Wednesday that “cutting the 2.5% raise set for 2021 to 1% for millions of federal workers seems a bit austere in the face of such self-proclaimed boom times.”

 

“Even more absurdly, Trump is justifying ordering the cut on the grounds that the country is in the midst of a ‘national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare,’ which the White House says authorizes the president to ‘implement alternative plans for pay adjustments,'” Hannon added.

 

“So which is it? The best economy in the history of economies or a national economic emergency? Either way, somebodys lying.”
