Federal Salary Council: Federal employees’ salaries lag their private-sector counterparts in comparable jobs by 22.47 percent. The last time the federal pay gap was computed, in late 2020, the council reported a 23.1 percent gap. President Biden’s recommended pay boost would be the largest for the 2.1 million executive branch workers in two decades. The council calculates pay differences on a national average and by some four dozen city areas using Labor Department statistics on costs of labor — not costs of living — under a formula set by a federal pay law. By city zone, the largest increases in 2023 would be paid to employees working in the San Francisco-Oakland, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle-Tacoma, San Diego and Washington
