(Before It's News)

Washington Examiner reports on Trey Kovacs’ study on the practice of official time. 

The estimate is from a study by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a libertarian think tank, and based on publicly available federal data and information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. The study is titled “It Is Time To End Official Time.”

“Activities performed on official time benefit only labor unions and their members, not the public. Furthermore, it is likely that thousands of federal employees spend 100 percent of their time performing union activity instead of the public service they were hired to do,” said Trey Kovacs, CEI’s labor policy expert.

“Unfortunately, a general lack of transparency surrounding the practice makes it impossible to know what specific activities are performed on official time or what its costs are,” Kovacs said.
