I'm not a government worker, but I could only imagine what it's like to have to worry about pay freezes all the time, especially with rising costs of living! As a recent graduate, my biggest concern would be things like student loans. I'm on plans where they rise with time as I theoretically advance in my career, and they're a burden as is. I'd be interested to know the major concerns of feds regarding pay freezes as well. Is there any chance people would look into getting out of the public sector because of this?
