    In my state they can't keep people.

    Accounting for inflation the jobs all pay way less now than they did 15 or 20 years ago,  plus they have cut all the benefits for the new hires.

    The plus of government jobs was good benefits but now the pay is getting so low people are jumping ship to go cut hair, or do drywall.  

    If the Affordable Care Act really works I predict you will see craploads of people leaving the govt. Many only work there because you can get insurance and are totally tired of the high caseloads, no raises and continual crap they are given from politicians with their unfunded mandates and from mgmt.
