Lawmakers rally with public-sector union to demand pay raise for federal workers
Rep. Kevin Hern: Biden wants to do ‘nothing’ about government spending
Oklahoma Rep. Kevin Hern shares his takeaways from President Biden’s State of the Union speech on ‘The Evening Edit.’
Federal lawmakers rallied with representatives from the nation's largest government employee union on Capitol Hill Tuesday to push for a raise for public sector workers.
Several Democrats and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., joined activists with the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) on Tuesday to demand that Congress pass legislation to give federal workers an 8.7% pay increase.
"When we are united, we are strong. When we organize, we win," Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said at the rally. "The government workers must have 8.7%."
