This pay freeze not only affects myself and my family but the employees as well; especially those who put their lives on the line every day in federal law enforcement positions. This is more like a pay decrease due to the rise in medical costs. This is a slap in the face for all of the hard work that us as federal employees put out every day and something needs to be done about this.
