Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland spoke to members of the National Treasury Employees Union on Wednesday, saying that federal government jobs are “much more complicated and difficult … and not being compensated fairly when compared to the private sector.” Despite Cardin’s claims to the contrary, a recent Congressional Budget Office study concluded that rank-and-file government employees are already paid 16 percent more than their private sector counterparts.
