Pay freeze doesn't seem fair

Posted: Friday, December 03, 2010

Are we serfs? The president said he will ask for a pay freeze for all federal employees. But not including Congress or their aides. Are they not federal employees? This year Congress voted not to give retirees a 5-percent increase on their Social Security payments but voted a 10-percent increase on their pay.

Are they royalty and we serfs? They do not even pay Social Security and can retire after six years -- and now this? I will not vote for anyone who will vote yes on this without an amendment to include the people who work for us. Speak out. Write to them (our delagation). This is not right.

Robert Anders, Nikiski
