    That’s why we pay the gov office the big bucks. So that they can take every possilble holiday off. Average pay check in excess of 50 grand per year. Full medical coverage, Retirement after 20 years on full pay and health benefits.
    That inckudes the mailroom clerk, the janitor, the whole lot of them! Wish I had had the sense to cheat the people err I mean work for the government!

    • tired of the whiners

      Most are taking unpaid days off (aka-furlough days) during the holiday season.

      So stop whining and get over it.

        No one gets full retirement after 20 years! Plan E pays only 80% after 40 yrs, Where did you get these stats? Most the employees are barely getting by
        Have to pay childcare, high deductions for low quality medical care,
