    President Barack Obama signed an executive order setting federal civilian and military pay scales for 2014, and including the first raise for civilian workers in four years. Military and civilian employees will get a 1 percent raise in the new year, consistent with the level laid out in Obama's budget proposal from earlier in the year. The order had to be signed before January 1 to allow federal agencies to update their pay systems for the new year.
