Grade reduction

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

To save money, the government, and our jobs, have all the civilians in the US government take a permanent, full reduction in Grade. If you are GS-12, you would become GS-11.

Congress, President, Judges, etc. would take a similar pay cut.

Our soldiers, airmen, sailors, marines, and coast guard would be exempt. Their pay for what they are willing to sacrifice is already upside down.

Like a home budget, making a cut in one area, won't do any good, if we still spend more than we make.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
