Myrick Votes To Freeze Pay for Members of Congress & Federal Workers

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) voted today to extend a pay freeze for Members of Congress and certain federal workers, saving American taxpayers $20.4 billion.

"Unemployment remains high. The American people aren't receiving automatic pay increases, and neither should those whose salaries are paid with American tax dollars," Rep. Myrick said.

A recent study by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office shows that federal workers make an average of 16% more than private-sector employees.

In addition to halting automatic pay increases, the House has voted to cut Congress's budget by 11.4% -- a 5% across-the-board cut for 2011, and an additional 6.4% cut in 2012.
