I need your help getting the Locality Pay issue fixed over at OPM.
I just started a petition on the White House website about adjusting the Locality Pay for Federal Employees.
The Petition is to have OPM restructure the Locality Pay system for Federal Employees by adjusting locality pay percentages to reflect areas in the country that have the HIGHEST cost of living to the LOWEST.
Right now, if you live in Washington DC you get paid less than if you were live in Houston TX, does that make sense to you? If not, we need to take action and petition President Obama to look at the locality pay issue for Federal Employees.
We need initially 150 votes to make it visible on the White House website – once it catches on, we need 25,000 signatures before it gets to the President.
