Federal workers may not get payroll tax holiday
For hundreds of thousands of federal workers, Scrooge seems to be running the merrymakers out of town.
It's the holiday season, but federal staffers, along with millions of state and local public employees, won't get the tax holiday included in legislation that jumped a procedural hurdle in the Senate on Monday.
At the same time, those federal workers, the ones covered by the Civil Service Retirement System, are facing a two-year pay freeze, as are most government employees. On top of that, an agreement reached last week between President Obama and congressional Republicans would end the Making Work Pay program, which provided a $400 annual tax credit.
