President Obama on Friday issued an executive order to increase the salaries of federal employees by 1.3 percent in 2016, finalizing a year-long process to give government workers a pay raise.

Federal workers are, ostensibly, working. Elderly and disabled are not. Don't you think that people who are actively working deserve more than those that are not? Or do you think that all people deserve equal income no matter what?

I just got a letter 2 days ago from Social Security.
They informed me since there was no change in the cost of living I wouldn't be getting an adjustment this year.
So if there's no inflation why do federal employees need a raise?

Three times now the Obama administration has given the shaft to the elderly, and disabled. THREE TIMES.
Government workers received a 1 percent bump in both 2014 and 2015, and their pay was frozen in the three years prior.
