WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is offering civilian federal workers and members of the military a 1 percent pay increase in 2015, the same raise he offered last year citing efforts to keep government costs down during the economic recovery.
The raises reflect what Obama proposed in his 2015 budget earlier this year.
The figure is lower than private sector pay increase and lower than what a government formula for raises would have provided.
