Agen­cies ad­vised to de­lay raises for top of­fi­cials

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

Fed­eral agen­cies have been di­rected to hold off en­act­ing pay raises for top ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fi­cials dur­ing a shut­down that has left hun­dreds of thou­sands of fed­eral work­ers with­out pay.

The raises were the re­sult of a pay freeze for top of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing the vice pres­i­dent and Cab­i­net sec­re­taries, that was on the verge of ex­pir­ing be­cause of the shut­down.

In a memo is­sued Fri­day, Mar­garet We­ichert, the act­ing direc­tor of the Of­fice of Per­son­nel Man­age­ment, wrote that OPM “be­lieves it would be pru­dent” for agen­cies to con­tinue to pay these se­nior po­lit­i­cal of­fi­cials at the frozen rate” for now.
