A new report finds that private-sector workers are paid, on average, 32 percent more than federal employees in similar occupations, FCW.com reports.
The findings come from a new report by the Federal Salary Council—which oversees the general schedule locality pay at the Office of Personnel Management—and is based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the report notes, adding that San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Md., have the largest pay disparities.
According to the article, the council also added six new special pay rate localities to the President's Pay Agent: Birmingham, Ala.; San Antonio, Texas; Burlington, Vt.; and Virginia Beach, Va., Omaha, Neb.; and Corpus Christi, Texas.
