ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on federal employee pay in the U.S. The U.S. President George W. Bush believes that bigger raise could threaten fight against terrorism. A dispute has arisen between the U.S. Congress and the U.S. administration over the pay raise plan. In late August, 2003 President Bush proposed holding 2004 civil service pay increases to an average of 2 percent. He proposed granting white-collar federal employees a 1.5 percent across-the-board pay increase, with the remaining 0.5 percent going toward locality-based raises. Congressional leaders dismissed part of the Bush proposal that would have created a performance fund to reward employees.
