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.
