Ok I will give you that point, there are a few jobs in public service that pay far less than their private sector counterparts.
This is not the norm though is it? We both know it isnt, and you are trying to use the exception to make out the whole.
On the whole, minus a couple of exceptions, the private sector pays minimum wage for the same job .gov employees get 50K plus outrageous benefits
packages, and retirements, and over twice as many paid vacation days, and many more paid holidays for.
.gov employees are getting paid from "the peoples" money, they should be paid the average from the private sector, no more, with equal benefits
packages. They act like this is "free" money, when it is actually taken from the people.
