Actually the 15% number is comparison between employees with High School diplomas in the public and private sectors. If you have a BS/BA degree, public and private are about equal. However if you have an advanced degree and you are in the government, you will make 23% less than your private sector counterparts. Check this link out, it is an article based on what I had heard on Fed News Radio.
