Federal Jobs: Fat City

Written by Gary North on September 3, 2012

The federal government pays high wages. A terrific article lists 16 really outrageous job classifications, pay scales, and deals. Here, I list eight of them.

#1 Nearly 500,000 federal employees now make at least $100,000 a year.

#2 In 2006, only 12 percent of all federal workers made $100,000 or more per year.  Now, approximately 22 percent of all federal workers do.

#3 If you can believe it, there are 77,000 federal workers that make more than the governors of their own states do.

#4 In 2010, the federal government spent $33,387 on the hair care needs of U.S. Senators.

#5 In 2010, U.S. Senators pulled $72,370 out of the “Senate Restaurant Fund”.

#6 In 2010, U.S. Senators took $166,673 out of something called the “Senate Gift Shop Revolving Fund”.

#7 In 2010, an average of $4,005,900 of U.S. taxpayer money was spent on “personal” and “office” expenses per Senator.

#8 Cooks working for the Bureau of Prisons make an average of $66,225 a year.

    The answer is recall elections. Establish a secure web site for a recall petition that can verify, securely, an individual’s legal identity by their voter ID number. Have radio stations advertise the petition on air and on their web sites with the petition web site address. This way you can collect the required number of signatures that are verifiable, required to establish a recall election. If you could check the signatures collected by the unions in Wisconsin you would probably find some dogs, cats, and dead people in the lists, which is why you must use an acceptable verifiable identity to the petition list. Imagine a recall election for Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi.

  3. If you voted for Obama because he is black, you are a racist. If you didn't vote for Obama because he is black, you are a racist. I did not vote for Obama because his campaign was all talk and no substance. He did not say what "Change" was and now we know and I'm glad I didn't vote for him. independent voter
