Those studies show that government workers earn 150% more than equivalent term and skill positions in the private sector. But that way understates the difference in earnings.

I do not think that those studies include the factor of job risk. Most people in private sector jobs get laid off or fired — downsized — every so often. No so with FedGov.

I’d guesstimate that were that job risk to be factored in we’re looking at 300%.

You'll have to show us the details of the studies. I seriously doubt government attorneys earn 1.5 times as much as their private sector counterparts.

Government engineers don't either.

You match job for job with the same skillsets and experience, the studies show the opposite.

Now, let's match CRIMINAL RECORDS. Your typical civil servant, e.g. a postal worker or one of the drones at Department of Defense (that's at the federal level eh) do not have CRIMINAL RECORDS!

Show me how Seven Eleven or AAA Refuse could run a business if they demanded that no one have a CRIMINAL RECORD.

Hey, even General Motors hires convicted felons!

The US government doesn't.
