  • FMA Applauds Rep. Norton’s Leadership on Salary Compression - October 12, 2022
  • FMA writes a monthly column, "Hear it from FMA," published on FEDmanager.com. This month's article, published on October 11, 2022, looks at how salary compression impacts retention of federal managers and celebrates Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) for her leadership on the issue.

    President Joseph Biden took formal steps at the end of August to advance his proposed 4.6 percent pay raise for federal employees in 2023. Although FMA preferred and advocated for the 5.1 percent raise called for by Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI), we support the 4.6 percent raise, which marks the largest increase in twenty years.

    At the same time, due to the pay cap, we are concerned about salary compression affecting an increasing number of feds -- a very real issue that will only get worse if no action is taken.
