ABSTRACT
The article reports on the delay over U.S. federal pay revisions and the ccontentious debate concerning it. The chairman of the Senate's Homeland and Governmental Affairs Committee, Senator Ron Johnson has announced plans to hold hearings and to make the federal salaries competitive. However, he does not have necessary facts to hold hearings as several recent analyses available are not factual. It's been two decades since the Bureau of Labor Statistics compiled any relevant pay data.
