Gov't employs about 20 million people. At least half do not earn their keep. Most earn about 40% more than private industry pays. Unions elect flunkies to boost their benefits. I know, I was a gov't employee about 25 years ago before unions were powerful. Darn it, my timing was all wrong, today my benefits would be almost triple.
"Most earn about 40% more than private industry pays"
This is true ONLY for the lowest paid employees IF you add benefits to total compensation. If you look at people with a Bachelor's Degree then the difference is only 15% IF you ad benefits and for graduate degrees government employees make less even including benefits.
59% of the people in this country want to get rid of idiot care shut it down and if it does not work then the libs will have it all . With a 17 trillion dollar dept and a trillion a year in interest it won't take long to be like detroit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you want to pay to bring all the military people home so they can spend their time off with their families? The reason you are on with a shutdown is because like all wingnuts you have no idea what the government does. Like the rest, you are just angry and uninformed.
