Senior Trump officials get $10,000 raise despite shut-downIn the midst of a government shutdown that has left nearly 800,000 federal workers without paying jobs, hundreds of senior Trump administration officials are set to receive $10,000 raises, The Washington Post reported Friday.

Those raises are the result of a pay cap for federal employees that Congress failed to renew at the end of 2018. If no legislative action is taken, that cap will expire on Saturday.

As a result, many senior officials will receive a hefty raise: Cabinet secretaries will jump from making $199,700 each year to $210,700, and Vice President Mike Pence’s salary will go from $230,700 to $243,500.
