VA (Department of Veterans Affairs)

The United States has the most comprehensive system of assistance for veterans of any nation in the world. This benefits system traces its roots back to 1636, when the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony were at war with the Pequot Indians. The Pilgrims passed a law which stated that disabled soldiers would be supported by the colony. The establishment of the Veterans Administration came in 1930 when Congress authorized the President to "consolidate and coordinate Government activities affecting war veterans."

This forum also includes the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

Perhaps you are working for the VA or interested in working for the VA. Here is a forum to share your experience with the VA.

Today, the White House announced that the Federal Government will now pay all Federal workers a minimum of $15 per hour. These changes will take effect January 30, 2022.
Some will benefit and some will not.
What have you to say about this?

Who won’t benefit?
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.

Truth right there. Because nobody else will get a similar percentage bump.

Honestly, when that came out the first thought I had was that the cafeteria workers will now make at least $15/hr, which I'm sure is more than they were making.

Also, I'm sure the custodians will benefit.

Well the Custodians, Food Service and Canteen employees did benefit but the utilities, food and gas went up as well. Fortunately my mortgage rate did not go up.
