Federal Wage System (FWS) Payscales for 2011

The Federal Wage System (FWS) is a pay scale system that applies to blue-collar Federal government workers. The Office of Personnel Management, with the help of local labor unions, establishes hourly FWS pay tables for every major Government facility in the United States.

Similar to the white-collar GS Payscale, an employee's pay under the FWS is determined by their pay grade (determined by their job title and seniority) and pay step (determined by how long they have worked in that position).

Choose any state or Government facility from the list below to access all of the relevant 2011 FWS payscale tables for that location. Where available, the applicable GS pay table for that location is also included.
