Letter: Union, employees have little room to complain about pay increases

Regarding the article "Pay for performance hammered at House hearing," a reader writes: Given the reports earlier this month that AVERAGE pay increase for employees under the NSPS was in excess of 7 percent, I find it hard to understand the wailing, moaning and gnashing of teeth from government employees and their union representatives on this issue.

Given the title of the congressional hearings referred to by this article, I also find it hard to believe that the hearings were in any way, shape or form an unbiased effort to obtain a fair evaluation of the effectiveness of pay-for-performance systems.
