President Obama has said he wants to “make government cool again.” His latest attempt: The federal government’s HR directors are studying a plan to boost the starting pay of college grads by a cool $8,000 a year—to $41,210.

Under the plan, the newcomers would start their federal careers at the GS 7 level. That’s a two-grade bump from the traditional GS 5 level for new hires with four-year college degrees, which comes with a $33,269 annual paycheck. The GS 7 has been reserved for “outstanding scholars” with high grade-point averages.

The Office of Personnel Management proposal needs approval from the federal agencies but no action from Congress.
