WHAT THE AUTHORS FOUND:

During a typical workweek, private-sector employees work about 41.4 hours. Federal workers, by contrast, put in 38.7 hours, and state and local government employees work 38.1 hours.

In a calendar year, private-sector employees work the equivalent of 3.8 more 40-hour workweeks than federal employees and 4.7 more weeks than state and local government workers.

Put another way, private employees spend around an extra month working each year compared with public employees. If the public sector worked that additional month, governments could theoretically save around $130 billion in annual labor costs without reducing services.

NOTE: Public School teachers are EXCLUDED from the full-year comparison because of their naturally shorter work year.

It is near impossible to find a gov’t employee that has suffered a pay cut in the last 4 years of obamanomics. But you can’t swing a cat at Walmart today without hitting at least one private sector employee that has had a pay cut.

White males need not apply, affirmative action has punished white men, that’s what it was meant to do, now, the human resource departments are free to discriminate with impunity, “Oh, hi Pedro Sanchez, what’s that you say? You have a friend or family member who needs a job Pedro, okay, I’ll see what I can do”, too funny, check the box on the application if you want, yet if you are white, I suggest you check NATIVE AMERICAN!
