Freepers discuss a survey about federal employees considering leaving for the private sector.
hal ogen knows government employees can't make it in the private sector:
WARNING!!! WARNING!!! To all HR managers in the private sector: Keep an eye out for government employees who, if hired, will seriously harm your company. WARNING!!! WARNING!!!MeshugeMikey is sure government employees are all slavish Obama devotees:
Their discontent is understandable their chances of finding employment in a dwindling economy....seems unlikely.But Hurricane knows Obama is only using them until the Republic dies once and for all:
do they feel no sense of SHAME, wanting to abandon the great leader in his hour of need?
Once Obama has complete dictatorial control he no longer needs their votes. The talented ones will leave on their own.skeeter realizes there are some government jobs that are fine...
My guess is most of these federal workers polled are related to the defense industry.yldstrk knows Federal pay is actually huge:
There's no way the louses & lardasses working in the DMV, educational establishment, EPA, etc are considering leaving. They're rolling in dough.
they think they are not getting the high pay their “civilian counterparts” are, but they are actually making more. I know, I was a government worker, they whine and complain like children about how they are mistreatedstocksthatgoup brings the made-up numbers:
Average government worker earns 2x private sector worker.ArtDodger spends his days hanging out with bureaucrats fantasizing of them being eaten by zombies:
I hear this ‘threat’ from useless bureaucrats all the time. ‘I had better get my raise or I am outta here!’ But, they never go. They just continue sucking the life blood from society in jobs so pointless they can't even pretend to justify their existences. These are the ones the zombies are going to eat first.max americana, he of "fired liberals in our company last election, and I laughed while they cried (true story)" infamy, can't seem to stop hiring liberals again:
based on experience, there’s only 1 thing they mutter when we had ex-govt employees which is “Well, this never happened when I was with the union...”Pentagon Leatherneck gets a bit offended:
These clowns are trained in the mentality of being untouchable and un-fire-able..
The ignorance and jealousy in many of these posts are appalling. Do you people ever research, analyze or even think before your knee jerk reactions?conservative cat looks up people's pay online, to better resent them.
I talked to a couple once who complained about their pay freezes, so I looked it up in the database. I wish I had their pay freezes! They were making more than I was, and had increased their pay by much greater percentages than I had over the last few years, and I work for a very profitable private company.mj1234 seems to hate his wife...
My wife has worked for the govt. for over 30 years!Makes you wonder why conservative cat and the other Freepers doesn't jump ship to Federal work?
She has seen my pay cut 30-40% - I do not get ANY benefits- guess what?—
No one at her “govt. job” will talk to her any more -
She is entitled to a Pension-almost 60 % of salary
She will get health benefits
the Govt matched her 401 K-
At 63 she could start her Social Security
She currently earns 5+ weeks of vacation and 11 holidays
She has accumulated more than 750 Hours of “sick time”
She gets “longevity Pay!”!! which is a lump sum payout
at Christmas of $1300 dollars- everyyear now for the Kicker-
She makes more than 30% than me. and Could retire-NOW
I love my Wife-
When she tries to tell others how GOOD we are doing-the other “workers “ just don’t believe her-
NOT ONE OF THEM WOULD MY BOSS EVER-EVER HIRE!
They live in a fantasy - O’BUMMER CARE LAND where they believe the Private sector workers all make Millions.
Better benefits and better pay. Many of my private sector friends and I talk about going to government jobs for less stress, less hours, better medical, and pensions. They are obviously not aware of the real world.But Hostage sees the writing on the wall.
Maybe they got a much needed wake-up call from Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee?The gravy train is over, on accounta the inevitable Tea Party victory!
If I was fat, dumb and happy with a mortgage and a job inside the Beltway. my house would now be up for sale and my CV would be updated. But then that would make me one of the smart ones so I contradict myself.
Thank you Senators Cruz and Lee!!!
