    In the Government, you have to offer compensation that is equivalent with the private sector
    Otherwise, you get what you pay for

    If you have a Government lawyer trying a case that is paid $125,000 a year going up against a corporate lawyer being paid $1 million a year

    Guess who wins?

    This thread isn't serious?

    Yep, lets fire people that maintain our country, help people, regulate our air, water and food. Republicans are not serious people but fools that think that sitting around with their fingers in their butts that we will somehow be great.

    You do know that you would be giving them a day off and they would still be getting paid since government payrolls are salaried positions don't you?

    It has been the policy to reimburse the furloughed employees, that is true. That obviously does not reduce costs so I would propose they not be reimbursed. One unpaid day off a month. Simple as that. That along with eliminating redundant positions, laying off bad employees, etc.

    Employees have not been reimbursed for furloughs, it comes out of their pockets

    They have been reimbursed for Government shutdowns

    So you are a respected accountant or engineer working for the Government. They tell you that you will be sent home one day a month without pay and you must still meet your performance objectives

    Why do you want to continue working for the Government?

    You get what you pay for

    Yeah ... Corporations discovered the "leaner meaner" workforce applications back in the 80's.

    It isn't surprising that government hasn't managed to catch up with those principles yet.
    That's just what happens when all an organization does is spend money and they aren't required to budget costs.

    Some folks will attempt to justify the salaries by suggesting they are the governmental counterparts to corporate positions.
    They fail to realize that their corporate counterparts are usually paid in conjunction with their ability to produce profits and not costs.
