Here we are about to go over the fiscal cliff taxes are going to go up, every program is going to be cut and Congress is going to get a pay raise!
The most unproductive congress since the 1940s is going to get a pay raise WHY?
They haven't done anything.
If you don't do your job do you get a pay raise?
Something is very wrong here.
They say they haven't had a pay raise in two years, well they haven't done anything in two years to deserve a pay raise.
Have a nice day

Using that logic, volunteer firemen get paid for what they are worth-seeing as they do noting but beg for money, get drunk and start arson fires

You have no idea of what you are talking about.
I can see you never have even worked 1 hour in the ford plant over here.
If you did you wouldn't be saying things like that.
I have seen people like you , all mouths come to work there and by noon the first day walk out and quit.
They thought it was going to be real easy and when they found out just what work really was they left.
So Go back to your little kiddy room and play with your toys

The raise was given to federal workers via executive order. Unfortunately congress in included as federal workers!

The reason for the pittance of a raise,.05%, is because conservatives in congress have frozen wages for federal workers. Therefor People like the capitol police, cooks, cleaning staff, etc. will get nothing. Obama is ignoring congress and giving these people a raise anyhow!

Its not intended as a raise for congress, its an attempt to help out the hard working folks who deserve it!

yes , I actually know plenty.

So you don't think the folks that work in the house or senate cafeteria work hard? Those Capitol police and cleaning crews are just so lazy.

Don't be so stupid

I know several federal employees and most brag about how easy their jobs are compared to when they worked in the private sector. They claim it often takes 2-3 federal employees to do the job of one private sector employee. Many of them spend a good portion of their "work" days posting on Facebook.

Stories of "hard working" federal employees are just that, STORIES!

Ha Ha!

It sound like nothing but envy to me!

I guarantee you that federal employees in and around the capitol work long days, and they arent paid much to work in an expensive area like DC.

You should see the guys down at the federal Building in Buffalo. Go to the VA processing center for GI bill...these people are freakin swamped.

Jobs.gov ....but they might not want you!

More like rage than envy. As a workaholic, I envy nobody who does half, or a third of the work others do. I'd be ashamed of myself if I were a federal, state, city, town, etc, employee.

Ha Ha!

I agree it is unfortunate that Congress is included.
The real workers in the Fed. gov. should get a cola raise but the useless do nothing congress does not deserve a raise.
this congress has done nothing and FDR called the congress of 1948 a do nothing congress I wonder what he would say about this one.
Have a nice day

I know alot of Ford workers past and present. About 82% of them are drunken, drug-addicted malingerers.

I heard many stories about guys who would sabotage machinery so they could sit on their butts waiting for somebody to repair it. Another guy told me that if a boss said something to an assembly line worker that he did not like, they would have to shut down the whole line while they had a meeting with the union rep to resolve the program while the uninvolved workers would wait around.

I have known some decent auto workers, but most of them are real scumbags-drug addicts

I know the job is not fun because of the monotony, and I am sure that the monotony is why these guys have to get drunk and high at work to make it tolerable
