“Trump And GOP Congress Want To Make It Easier To Fire Federal Employees”

youre-fired

The protections for federal workers often come as the result of federal unions negotiating with friendly Democrats in Congress to gain those protections. The unions repay the favor by endorsing Democrats and donating to their campaigns. It is quite a racket. And it is one that is a drain on taxpayer dollars as well as efficiencies within government agencies. If there is no fear of being terminated, what point is there in working hard?

It used to be that people worked government jobs for the exchange of lower pay than the private sector in return for lucrative benefits and well-paid pensions. That is no longer the case. The Cato Institute did a study showing federal employees make more than their private-sector counterparts. And they still get the generous benefits and pension.

Hopefully, that time has come to an end:

President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress are drawing up plans to take on the government bureaucracy they have long railed against, by eroding job protections and grinding down benefits that federal workers have received for a generation.”
