We have seen the future, and it sucks.

CBO: Federal Employees Are Still Overcompensated

26th April 2017

Read it.

In a report released yesterday, the CBO concludes that federal employees receive total wages and benefits that average 17 percent above what comparably skilled workers earn in large private-sector firms. The federal premium comes from slightly higher salaries — about 3 percent higher than the private sector, on average — coupled with massively higher benefits, which average 47 percent above private-sector levels. The new report is an update of the CBO’s 2012 analysis, which found close to the same thing.

The only thing that saves us is that we don’t get all the government we pay for.
