Sarbanes Statement on Federal Civilian Workforce Pay Raise Fairness Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement today after voting for the Federal Civilian Workforce Pay Raise Fairness Act:
“For years, the Trump Administration and Republicans in Congress have attacked and undermined federal employees by freezing pay, slashing benefits and holding our civil servants and their families hostage by shutting down the government. It’s time we provide the hardworking women and men who serve our nation with the compensation they deserve. That’s why I was proud to co-sponsor and pass the Federal Civilian Workforce Pay Raise Fairness Act, a bill that will deliver a much-needed pay adjustment for civilian federal employees."
