    I work beside contractors who make more as "billable hour" than I make as an hourly wage, and their benefits are better.

    So, then you get folks who say, like Chris Christie, "then leave." But you don't say this to a soldier, airman, sailor or marine. I want to serve my country. I simply want a fair wage. I'm not asking for more than my private sector counterpart, but I would like to get close and to not have to work beside other developers make 10, 20 or 30 more per hour. I thought contracting out this work was meant to save money, then shouldn't the price negotiated also be the same?

    I'm here to serve my country, that's why it's called Civil Service.
