There you go:

"President Biden on Friday announced plans to give all federal civilian employees an average 2.7 percent pay raise, consistent with the increases he had proposed in his 2022 budget.

″I have determined that for 2022, the across-the-board base pay increase will be 2.2 percent and locality pay increases will average 0.5 percent, resulting in an overall average increase of 2.7 percent for civilian Federal employees,” Biden wrote in a letter to congressional leaders Friday.

The adjustments would take effect “on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after January 1, 2022,” Biden wrote.

The raise would apply to some 2.1 million executive branch employees, although not to the more than 600,000 employees of the U.S. Postal Service, whose raises are set through bargaining. Cost-of-living increases for federal retirees also are determined separately, reflecting the same inflation measure used for Social Security benefits.

“This alternative pay plan decision will not materially affect our ability to attract and retain a well‑qualified federal workforce,” Biden wrote.

The president’s announced pay increases are not set in stone. If Congress enacts different rates of pay increases for 2022, those numbers would take precedent over Biden’s. If Congress doesn’t specify any rates, Biden’s numbers take effect automatically. The Democratic-controlled Congress is unlikely to push for rates lower than Biden’s.

Several federal employee unions had been calling for a 3.2 percent increase. One of those, the National Treasury Employees Union, on Friday described Biden’s proposed raises as “a vast improvement over the previous administration’s attempts to freeze federal pay.”

Good move though, from a revenue and federal debt standpoint, this will just make US debt even larger.
Too bad they can't finance this raise using tax revenues from major corporations, which normally don't pay a fair tax share.
