Shutdown over: What next?
Five years ago, no one said - "Oh by the way... you're not getting a raise for at LEAST 4 years, so get ready..." I am drowning trying to keep up financiall already.
Please check my research, but see the average annual inflation rate in the US is 2.6% per year... X 4 years = 10.4%. How do I contribute to our economy like this? If some members of Congress are giving their paychecks to charity... where do i sign up??????????
I understand there was talk of giving us a .05% cost of living raise in January 2014. Wow, thats a $5.00 per week take home raise for me. Oh, but wait! I'm sure that wont happen now either.
Why does the federal workforce have to be the program where cuts are being made year after year after year after year?
Please, Make it Stop!!!!!
