Federal Salary Council Sees 35 Percent Public-Private Pay Gap

Federal employees earn approximately 35 percent less than those in similar private-sector jobs, according to data reported by the Federal Salary Council last week.

The council found a 34.92 percent pay gap, a figure similar to the 35.37 and 35.28 percent gaps reported in the past two years.

The council, which is made up of federal employee union representatives and pay experts, also voted to recommend the creation in 2017 of two new locality pay areas in Virginia Beach/Norfolk, Virginia, and Burlington/South Burlington, Vermont.

The President’s Pay Agent must approve recommendations made by the Federal Salary Council.

The council also voted to alter its methodology for determining pay gaps, among other changes.
