In January of this year, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced a $15 per hour minimum wage for federal civilian employees.

  • Kiran Ahuja, director of OPM, told Government Matters the increase impacted over 70,000 employees but was “certainly not enough.”
  • There have been successive pay increases since President Biden took office, and the White House proposed a 4.6% pay raise for fiscal 2023, said Ahuja.
  • “I think there’s an acknowledgment here … that we do have to play a little bit of a catch-up with federal government salaries,” she said.
