Just curious about this

Do government workers (all, not just politicians)realize they work for the people? Is this stressed by the employers like it is stressed by the retail sector(the customer is always right)?

Since they make so much more than the private sector shouldn't they at least know who it is that pays their salary?

  • Yeah...that's about as effective as telling a cop "Do you now who pays your salary?"

  • Everyone has their moments and you would too if it was in government. You nor anyone can put on a good face every single day or moment I don't care who it is.

  • Do people know what they are talking about when they post? Do me a favor, go to A federal employee nurse starts around 40K a yr. Police officers around 34K, Engineers 49-68K, Not exactly "so much more" than the private sector. Around here thats actually less. And your attitude is exactly why my dh left his federal employee job. He was treated like crap by people that thought he should be serving them, when his job was to protect the army post. He was paid less than the private sector, yet had full police powers on that base. Look at the federal pay charts, you can google. Unless you get way up there in the GS scale you don't make anything.

  • What's the difference who they work for? What exactly do you think they owe you? Little confused by your question.
