Jessica Klement, government affairs director for the Federal Managers Association, says the federal workforce is highly paid because the government employs skilled people such as scientists, physicians and lawyers. She says federal employees make 26% less than private workers for comparable jobs.
1. Federal Managers Association = Union.
The Federal Managers Association is the oldest, largest, most influential professional association representing the interests of the nearly 200,000 managers, supervisors, and executives serving in today's Federal government. Since 1913, FMA has been a passionate advocate for excellence in Federal public service through effective management, as well as a forceful champion of its members' legislative agenda.2. Federal employees make 26% less ...
Either they are stupid, or Ms. Klement is lying. Count the lifetime payout, not just annual salary; and note too the absence of risk of layoff. Once in, "permanent," there are no federal downturns. There is NOPLACE in private employment with that perk.
“...She says federal employees make 26% less than private workers for comparable jobs...”
Knee-jerk reaction is to doubt this for a few reasons, one being: Are they comparing total compensation or just salary? There’s a drammatic difference between a public sector at-will employed person paid X per year w/benefits vs. public sector (pension, Cadillac benefits, possible union, cola, etc.) job also also paid X per year.

(nevermind the double income from retirement and 2nd job)
They are the worst!
They think back-stabbing, power consolidation, and work pawning are normal daily activities. Almost as if they think the private workplace is a ‘survivor’ episode and they need to make ‘alliances’
I think survivor is a good example of the mind-set of the govt work force. If you can stomach watching it
We have been feeding Leviathan far too much for far too long. He has grown into a self-serving Leviathan whose purpose in living is to become a more perfect parasite on our personal wealth. The only way to deal with such a beast is to put it on a starvation diet.
Skunk-a-palooza ..... and the robbery of the taxpayer rolls on
