What if, in the county where you live, the county was the biggest employer? That sounds pretty unlikely, eh?
What if, in the state where you live, the state was the biggest employer? Again, pretty unlikely.
Now, what if the average annual salary of those government workers was $67,000? And what if, with benefits, the total average package was more than $106,000?
What I just described to you is not your local, county, or state government. It is your federal government -- the biggest employer in the entire country.
For all the flack that "big business" automotive producers, brokerage houses, and banks have gotten for having too many employees and paying them all too much ... for all the citations of greed and corruption ... for all the claims that this is what led to their downfall ...
does it seem correct or necessary to have a federal government that all by itself is our biggest employer -- at an average salary that makes most of us salivate ... and then have that government voting to make itself bigger ...
does this seem wise ... does it seem sustainable?
Did it work for the auto manufacturers, brokerage houses, and banks?
Something to think about?
