Question for people who work at VA

Posted

I have a family member who works for VA as an LPN at a facility that is classified as acute but it more on the LTC side. This person said something to me that I did not pay much attention to at the time but now I am wondering about it. The remark was that staff did not get their expected raise but that people in managment did. What is going on there I wonder.:o

That doesn't sound right. VA's are different than civilian hospitals and facilities. Things usually happen across the board, if one gets a raise, they all do.

I could be wrong, I do not work for VA, but knowing what I do know about the government, it doesn't sound right.

My mom has worked for the VA for... not even 20 years, and you CANNOT ask for better benefits. She's not in management and seems to always be getting more money.

I always have gotten my raises. Sometimes rumors get started and continue to snowball. You can bet if they didn't get their raise...the union would be screaming bloody murder!!!
