8.7% Pay Cut for Feds earning 6-Figures

Unfortunately, I came across another article that will impact Federal workers IF passed. It was bad enough when Federal workers did not receive a pay raise in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Now we have to worry about this (or at least those making at least 100K will have to worry about this).

It's a bill with no co-sponsors and not active in committee. Not much to talk about until it shows some signs of life, eh?
