Letter: Step increases provide little financial boost in NSPS system

Regarding "Pay for performance hammered at House hearing," a reader writes: To me, these articles/blogs are very informative. But those of us who are in the lower [General Schedule] grades, who have reached step 10 receive nothing, other than the locality pay at the beginning of the year. Gas, and everything else has gone sky high. I used to look forward to the third year for my step increase. And now whenever we transition, it sounds like we will receive NOTHING for going in the NSPS system. 

Where is the "fairness" in that?
