Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.), Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, praised President Obama's announcement of a 2014 pay raise stating: "This long-overdue modest pay raise for federal government employees is a good step in recognizing the value of federal workers. They have been the targets of unending attacks. They've been furloughed, laid off and locked out through no fault of their own. I believe federal employees should never be scapegoats in fights over deficit reduction."
Joseph A. Beaudoin, president of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE), released the following statement: "Today's announcement by the president provides much-needed relief for America's hard-working, middle-class federal employees whose paychecks have been frozen while the cost of gas, groceries and housing has increased. As the pay gap between private- and public-sector workers has grown, ending the three-year pay freeze for public workers is an important investment in maintaining the strength of the federal workforce."
