By Kelley Lunney, Government Executive
President Obama issued an alternative pay plan Wednesday, giving civilian federal employees a 1.6 percent raise in 2017.
The total figure includes a 1 percent base increase, and a 0.6 percent locality pay bump, matching the amount the president requested in his fiscal 2017 budget proposal. Obama issued a separate plan providing a 1.6 percent boost in monthly basic pay rates for military service members.
