FIRINGS FOR "NO CAUSE AT ALL" IN HOUSE BUDGET COMMITTEE SPENDING PLAN - July 21, 2017
Hits on federal retirement advance as bill is introduced to fire feds for ‘no cause at all’
FMA will continue to push back against this shortsighted and unfair proposal.

House Republicans greeted current and future federal employees with two controversial body blows in recent days — one amounts to a pay cut and the other would allow new feds to be fired for “no cause at all.”
The House Budget Committee approved a spending plan that would save the government $163.5 billion over 10 years by taking that amount from federal employees. They would pay that in the form of “greater contributions to their own defined benefit retirement plans,” according to the panel’s budget document.
