  • No, government workers are FANTASTIC and I'm really looking forward to government-run healthcare. After all, the government is just so darn efficient...
    *sarcasm for those who missed it*
    *also, I know that not ALL gov't employees are lazy bureaucrats--this IS in the Just For Fun section*

  • WRONG time to claim that. I am in Wisconsin where government workers bust their butts to provide a service while dealing with cuts day after day. With people being laid off, with wages being frozen, with having to take furlough days to help balance a budget that they didn't cause. Government workers are hard workers who have to deal with disrespect from everyone. If you think you can do a better job, then apply and see how lazy you are. Child support caseworkers have more cases than a person can humanly handle and it gets worse everyday. Where do you think the first and most cuts come from? GOVERNMENT workers. Thousands of our government workers will be laid off, including teachers, EMT's, police. Before you complain, think about what is going on BEFORE complaining or get a job in the government and try to do a better job.

  • i'm not saying all..i said some. I think if you can't do your job..then there is always someone else that will be happy to do it right and probably for less money. its funny, when i used to work 3rd the job i'm working now..there would be 2 cops come in and sit and drink coffee from about 1am to 4am. They would only leave if they got a call. pretty sad in my opinion. They couldve atleast been out patrolling the area

  • I havent met any that work all that hard. I say that as someone whose mom worked for the Govt for many years. Everytime I go to DMV, social services with my dd, the schools, etc they act like they are doing you a favor by being there.

  • I know some people that work for the government and they bust their tails. I also don't think its fair that people are getting pay cuts and losing jobs.

  • i'm sure the ones who are getting the pay cuts are the ones who actually bust their butts..while the slackers are the ones who are moving ahead.
