While Americans struggle to come to terms with the crisis in Afghanistan, skyrocketing inflation, and an economy struggling to bounce back from bloated spending bills, President Joe Biden raised federal salaries on Friday for roughly two million federal government employees.

Biden announced the change citing “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare” on Friday in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Kamala Harris.
