Any organization that is more than $20 trillion in debt – Ok, there might not be any organizations under $20 million debt – but all organizations bleeding money would definitely not want to go for an across-the-board pay raise for their employees. Such are the dynamics of a true businessman, that they understand the downsides of going for a luxury pay rise, when the company is under debt.
But, to not give an across-the-board pay rise in Washington is considered quite controversial. News reporters go haywire, political critics press the red button, and foreign strategists lose their mind. Donald Trump, however, is least affected by any of the hue and cry when it comes to halting an across-the-board pay rise for federal employees. Being a businessman himself, and quite a brilliant one at it, Trump knows the art of the deal. There were optimistic speculations that Trump would apply proper business rules, rather than populist strategies and they are proving to be true.
President Donald Trump recently told the Congress that he is in no mood of giving federal employees the pay rise they were expecting this January. The announcement has come as a sudden revelation across the country, and many level-headed analysts have started praising Trump for the bold move.
Trump believes that the increase would cost a whopping $25 billion the federal kitty. Regarding this matter Trump also mentioned, “We must maintain efforts to put our Nation on a fiscally sustainable course, and Federal agency budgets cannot sustain such increases. Both across-the-board pay increases and locality pay increases will be set at zero.”
These cuts from the federal government have come as a burst of fresh air, and we cannot wait to receive more of such air going into the future.
Trump is preparing a level playing field for the future, and the times to come would surely be quite interesting and exciting.
