OUR OPINION: PAY FREEZE

Email

This newspaper has advised local governments to hold the line on wages during our economic downturn and we're glad to see President Barack Obama's call for a two-year pay freeze for federal workers. Congress, which has to approve the legislation for such a move, should quickly implement this freeze.

Any number of studies have shown the wage/benefit compensation levels of federal employees far exceed that of private sector workers. This cannot continue.
