Some of us actually work hard and earn our paychecks.
But, but.. FEDERAL WORKERS ARE ALREADY OUTRAGEOUSLY OVERPAID!!! LIFETIME PENSIONS? ELIMINATE THEM.
No question some government employees are worth what they are paid (although, except for the military, not a lot of them). But when those of us in the private sector (that still have a job), you know, the ones paying your salary, health benefits and pension, have gone without pay raises for five years, have taken pay cuts, have given up matching 401(k) funds and have had to pay more for health benefits than ever before, it is very difficult seeing ANYONE in goverment get a single dime for a raise. In fact, it sucks.
Those of you who do must feel taken advantage of by the loafers.
Yeah, exactly. How many of you critics of feds are facing a 20% pay cut right now?
