White House moves forward on proposed 5.2 percent raise for federal workers

  • President Joe Biden announced a federal pay raise for civilian employees on the General Schedule, with an average increase of 5.2% in 2024. The raise includes a 4.7% across-the-board raise and a 0.5% average locality pay adjustment. Congress has not indicated any opposition to the raise, suggesting support for the administration's plans.
  • This 5.2% pay raise would be the largest for federal employees since 1980. The increase aims to attract, recruit, and retain skilled workers, while also helping federal agencies compete with the private sector for talent.
  • The planned pay raise is based on the alternative pay plan proposed by Biden, rather than fully adopting the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act . The alternative plan aims to bring the public-private wage gap to just 5%, which would cost approximately $19.2 billion. The raise will take effect in the first pay period of January 2024, pending the president's executive order.
