Federal Employees:Federal Employee concerns in 2019Since 2011 our nation's federal employees have sacrificed nearly $200 billion for our nation through years of pay freezes and pension cuts that went towards deficit reduction. Some of that lost pay and benefits was used to offset the 2012 extensions of the payroll tax cut and Unemployment Insurance (UI), as well as to help fund the bill to avoid sequestration through FY15. Government employees have also experienced furlough days and job insecurity due to the 2018-2019 and 2013 government shutdowns, threats of other shutdowns, and sequestration. Despite these huge sacrifices, some in Congress and in the Administration continue to push proposals that target federal employees and their unions.
