  •  Public service,... ugh (0+ / 0-)

    Public service should not be looked on as a noble service any more than the plumber should be.  Or my back-breaker furniture moving job either.  Public service employees receive wages and benefits vastly beyond private sector employees and it's nearly impossible to get rid of the bad apples in public service.  The incompetent ones simply ride along until retirement, with the riches of a pension and medical care.

      Wisconsin, reclaiming its State motto: Forward!

      The "riches" of getting half or three quarters of what you were promised for working for your entire career?

      You haven't met many public employees have you?  I know plenty who make about average salaries. Most make less than public sector employees in comparable positions.

      You are probably the overpaid, incompetent gorilla/mover who broke my favorite china aren't you?  Probably some fat guy sitting around sipping coffee while riding around in a truck all day. Tough job... Yeah right!

      How many people have bought you lunch at McDonalds as a side deal huh?  I bet plenty of people bought you free lunches just for riding around in a truck!

      With any luck you will learn how wrong you are before you are in penury.

        I don't eat at Mc Donalds because I am a veggie.

        I don't have any public employee friends because I can't make them.  I simply shout them from the bar.

        I'm not overpaid.  Maybe that's why I'm not happy.

        Our Legislature is considering keeping a law allowing illegal aliens to keep drivers licenses.  Overturn it at all costs.  That's what we New Mexicans want

        Nice to meet you!
