Civil servants, Cheney get a raise


December 22, 2006

President Bush signed an executive order to raise the pay of federal workers, members of Congress and Vice President Dick Cheney in the new year.

Civil servants, on average, will get a 2.2% pay increase in January. So will uniformed members of the military.

Members of Congress, the vice president and most senior federal officials will get a 1.7% pay increase, as will federal administrative law judges. Currently, rank-and-file members of Congress make $165,200.
