    Obama Orders Pay Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers

    Obama Orders Pay Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers

    12:50 PM, Dec 28, 2012
    BY DANIEL HALPER



    President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise. One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden.
    According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he'll now make $231,900 per year.
    Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900. Leadership in Congress, including the speaker of the House, will likewise get an increase.
    Here's the list of new wages, as attached to President Obama's executive order:
    "A new executive order has been issued providing for a new pay schedule beginning 'on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning after March 27, 2013,'" reports FedSmith.com. "The pay raise will generally be about 1/2 of 1%."
    Jeryl Bier points to an example of the pay increase for average government executives:

    "Not much of an increase, but an increase all the same," Bier notes.
    And the timing isn't great either: Just as President Obama and Congress try to avert going over the "fiscal cliff," he doles out pay increases to federal workers.

    Raises
    In order to raise the pay of Congress, stand-alone legislation can be enacted, but it's more common that the salary is raised as a result of the "annual adjustment." This adjustment automatically changes the salary rate to coincide with the increase of cost of living each year. While a Cost of Living Adjustment is set to go annually, Congress can vote to refuse a pay raise for themselves in times of economic hardship. Members, too, can refuse raises on an individual basis. Many do so in order to show their constituents that they are being financially responsible with taxpayer's money.
