Are Federal Workers Overpaid?
"Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union, tells USA TODAY the data are not useful in a direct public to private pay comparison.
'Public union employees say the gap reflects the growing skill and education levels needed for most federal jobs, while the government farms out lower paid jobs to the private sector.' "
Oh, so now those of us who are NOT in government service are uneducated, and those of us in the private sector are working solely because the government gives us work.
Work that we, the uneducated, can perform.
Good thing I'm smart enough to tie a hangman's noose. I'll have a job when the revolution begins as long as the supply of government workers holds out.
After that, I'm going fishing.
Anyone want to help me clean up the pool of government workers so all of us "uneducated" people can go fishing that much sooner?
