Federal Wage System (FWS) Payscales in Pennsylvania for 2023
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).
Pennsylvania has one or more government installations with FWS pay tables, which are listed below. For a detailed calculation of your pay as a FWS employee in Pennsylvania, see our FWS Pay Calculator.
