Trump froze the pay of federal workers, long overdo. Next he needs to take an ax*to benefits, military included.*

Sadly, he did it to be viscous to those he perceives to be his "enemies," government workers.*

Trump is the first president who has ever governed with his type mentality. He favors some people over*others based on who he perceives they have voted for.*

Trump is fire garbage. Human filth.*
 
Federal workers need living wages too. I'm sorry that saying that was required.
 
Too bad the story can't be verified by a link to the EO.

What on earth makes you think Trump did this "to be viscous"?

It’s all about the oil..........viscosity is of utmost importance!

on average they make $6,100 more than do private sector workers.

and their benefits blow away the private sector

i am sorry that saying that was required

That's an insignificant part of the whole story. Where are they paid this, and what is the cost of living in the places where they work, and do you really want to be using the private sector as a bench mark for what they should be paid?

How much they make compared to somebody in the private sector is the whole story? Haha....no.

Pfffft. Those pansies expect to get everything handed to them on a platter. Like food, and not only food, but food that will keep them healthy and tastes decent. Surely if the USA is ready to take away agreed upon raises from EOTs, the USA is ready to start serving EOTs gruel? (Enemies Of Trump)

Maybe strip them of their homes as well? That'll learn 'em!

they are over compensated is the whole story. i gave you fact. But do go on.
 
It's sad that we have one of the dumbest people on the planet governing our country, and that he uses his position to intimidate people and cause pain. Sad.

Hmmm, you seem nice... :lamo

Boy howdy, can't wait till we cut military benefits!!
Then let's start another world war.

Should be fun.

'Cause disgusting and vicious are kind of his two main characteristics. Haven't you read any of his tweets? Didn't you notice he publicly supported the the KKK and Neo Nazis?

Do try to keep up Mycroft.

But that's how you unite a country, by causing as much pain and harm as possible to those you don't like.

Your opinion is what’s garbage. Federal workers earn every penny they receive. If, in certain instances, their civilian counterparts make less, then they are the ones who are likely underpaid.

As for your military comment, you obviously have no sense of patriotism or commitment to doing right by those who voluntarily put themselves in harms way, in part, to protect your right to say really stupi s***. They more than earn the pay and other benefits they receive. And not that any of us do it for personal gain, because we do not, comparably we’d be underpaid/compensated.

Why do you say they are "overcompensated"?

Because they earn much more than the private sector and there is no supply and demand at play in their wages.

What are you basing this on? And even then, so what? You've stated a claim without context and left it to me to give it meaning. It's your claim. You give it meaning.

and there is no supply and demand at play in their wages.

What are you basing that on?
