The move is a symbolic gesture to federal workers facing possible furloughs—and reduced pay—because of the sequester. The president makes $400,000 a year, so a pay cut of 5% for the whole year amounts to $20,000.

Was it necessary for President Obama to give back part of his salary? Was this a calculated PR move, and if so, was 5% enough?
