Bush administration unveils 2005 pay raise
By Tanya N. Ballard
President Bush issued an executive order Thursday evening formally
implementing a 3.5 percent average pay raise in 2005 for General Schedule employees.
The pay increase, which will take effect on Jan. 9, will be divided between a 2.5 percent base pay increase for all employees and an average 1 percent locality pay adjustment that varies according to where employees work.
