The federal government has been spending more and more on salaries and other benefits in recent years.
The average salary of a federal employee increased by $15,000 between 2013 and 2019, to $137,800.
The federal average salary for a private-sector worker has increased by a mere $12,500 over the same time period, to an average of $118,700.
In 2018, the federal government spent nearly $1 trillion on salaries, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
It is the second-highest amount spent on benefits in a single year behind $1.2 trillion spent on health care in 2016.
But the federal salary increase may not be nearly as large as some people think.
Federal government workers are actually paid less per hour than the average private-company employee, and in some cases less than their state- and local-government counterparts.
Federal workers make more money for the government than their states, cities, and counties, according a study by the Center for American Progress (CAP), which is a think tank affiliated with the Democratic-leaning think tank Center for Economic and Policy Research.
The CAP study, which was based on data from government payroll data from 2013 to 2019, found that federal workers earn on average $2,400 more per hour in real terms than their counterparts in states, localities, and regions.
The study, based on the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) data, found federal workers earned an average annual salary of $75,800, compared to the $77,300 average of the private sector.
That’s because federal workers are paid the same salary regardless of where they work, which makes them more likely to receive health care benefits.
The federal government also paid its employees an average $6,000 more in benefits than their private- and public-sector counterparts.
However, the difference is smaller when it comes to health care and retirement benefits, as well as pensions.
Federal employees make $4,700 more per year in retirement benefits than private- sector workers.
Federal employees who have been working for a federal government agency for 10 years are paid an average pension of $53,000, according the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP).
The same for federal employees who worked for a public agency for the same length of time.
Federal workers are also paid significantly less than private sector workers in terms of wages and benefits.
For example, federal workers make an average salary $64,500, compared with $77 for private-equity executives.
Federal government employees receive $9,000 less in retiree health benefits than those in private-business companies, according CBPP.
This compares to $17,500 for private companies and $26,400 for public sector employees.
Federal and state employees are also significantly paid less than the national average, according with the CBO report.
Federal retirees also make more than other types of workers, as federal workers receive an average benefit package of $14,600 per year, according in a report from the Center of Economic and Social Research (CEPS).
This compares with $13,400 per year for private sector employees and $19,600 for public- and private-employee employees.
Federal retired employees are paid a higher average salary than their peers in the private-industry, public-service, and non-profit sectors.
Federal retirees are also better off than other workers in retirement and health benefits, according CAP.
For federal retirees, the average benefit is $3,400, according as the CBO.
Federal retired workers receive the same benefits as private-corporate employees and public sector workers, according, according.
Federal officials have been criticized for not providing their employees with the financial security they need, and they may be responsible for some of the cost of living in the U.S.
A government study conducted by the Treasury Department last year found that Americans working for the federal agencies that serve the country are paying more than people in other industries.
In fact, federal employees pay an average more than private and private sector private-government employees.
The report also found that government workers were not compensated well for their work, and that they were paid far less than average for their services.
The Treasury Department study found that while federal workers made an average yearly salary of about $80,000 and were paid an annual benefit of $10,600, those in the non-governmental sectors paid an additional $15 to $25,000 for their service, according ABC News.
The study also found federal retirees were paid a smaller average benefit than private workers, and were far less well compensated than other industries for their hours of work.
The results of the study may be partially due to the fact that federal government employees are generally not paid overtime and may not receive a raise.
The Government Accountability Bureau (GAB) released its annual report on Federal Government Employees Compensation in 2018, and the GAB’s study found the federal average annual compensation of a government employee was $118.
