- FMA DISCUSSES THE NEED FOR PAY PARITY - July 8, 2014
In Depth with Francis Rose, Federal News Radio
Federal Managers Association (FMA) Government Affairs Representative Katie Maddocks spoke with Jared Serbu on In Depth with Francis Rose, on July 8, to discuss federal pay. While military personnel are on target to receive a 1.8% pay raise in 2015, federal employees can at most only expect a 1% raise. She noted it is unfortunate that there is not parity between the two groups that serve the country. Additionally, Maddocks called for the support of the the Federal Employee Combat Zone Act as introduced by Representative Rob Wittman (R-VA). Currently, military and contract personnel do not pay federal taxes while serving within a combat zone, however, civilians working right along side them do not receive this benefit. The bill moves to rectify this unfair practice, and is currently in front of the House Ways and Means Committee for review.
