It also said its staff had as- sumed from reading Burger's application that his experience was greater than an investiga- tion found it to be. But the com- mission said the information supplied by him was factually correct and his higher job rat- ing thus resulted from a com- mission error, giving it no choice but to let his appoint ment stand. It said Burger is now qualified for the GS-14 rating. He probably would have been eligible for a GS-12 position based on his actual experience nstead of the GS-14 he was awarded, said Bernard Rosen, commission executive director. The GS-12 job would have paid about less a year. Wife's Income Burger averaged a salary of annually from Crowell Inc., a Virginia real estate :irm, during his last three years as a salesman for the firm, company files showed.
