I am a retired AFGE 3rd VP from the Albuquerque VA.
The incoming 112th Congress will be the most destructive for federal employees and labor unions. This is the first time that I remember, the federal employees pay and benefits have been under attack. The backbone of the federal agencies are the employees. The balancing the budget and cutting the deficit should not be accomplished by freezing the pay of the employees.
