I just want to remind everyone that the last president to implement a federal pay freeze was Nixon.
And of course we all remember how that worked.
Just after that was when I left government for about a 33% raise in total compensation — including fringe benefits and retirement.
So much for over paid federal employees.
If federal employees are so overpaid why isn’t there a constant flow of people leaving the private sector for the high paying jobs in government rather than the other way around.
The funny thing about this is it always seems to be republicans who are leaving government because of the low pay for government employees.
