Hagan asks DoD to suspend raises for German workers

WASHINGTON, DC (WWAY) — Sen. Kay Hagan says if American defense workers have to be furloughed, German workers for the Department of Defense should not get a raise.

Hagan sent a letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel with her concerns.

As American civilian defense employees start furloughs next week, civilian workers at US bases in Germany are getting a union-negotiated pay increase.

Hagan has asked Hagel to suspend the increase.
