Union Bashing Vote
Trump Budget

All:

 

President Trump announced yesterday that he would increase defense spending by $54 billion and cut non-defense discretionary spending by the same $54 billion.

 

Non defense discretionary spending is currently $666.7 billion.  A cut of $54 billion is 8.1%.

 

SSA has informed the union that they will be forced to furlough the SSA workforce for 5 days for every 1% cut in its administrative budget.

 

If Trump succeeds in reducing non-defense discretionary spending by $54 billion equally to all non-defense agencies, SSA will have to furlough SSA employees for 8 weeks or 40 days.  This would be an across the board pay  cut of 15.4%.  In addition, SSA's ability to process the public's work would collapse.

 

We have the fight of our lives ahead of us.
