I ran into someone who worked for the Dept of Ag and she told me she was just promoted to another job in the Dept of Ag that she was "overpaid" for. I was so shocked, I had no response for her, I could only walk away. She had told me prior to that, that she literally had no "skills" to do the lower paid job there, then they promoted her. She said she wasn't complaining. I guess not.... considering she's not qualified to do the job, then gets promoted on top of that. Good article Mitchell. I wouldn't be suprised that 75% or more are unqualified and get paid much more than the private sector. Our "tax dollars" at work.... very sad indeed.

Since I’ve been in Washington from more than 25 years, it takes something really remarkable to shock me. But when I read today that federal bureaucrats are supposedly underpaid, notwithstanding all the evidence to the contrary, I thought somebody had sent me an article from the Onion.

But then I saw that the assertion of underpaid bureaucrats was put together by the stooges at the Federal Salary Council, a body controlled by government employee unions.

Here are some excerpts from a Federal News Radio report about their preposterous claim.

The gap in pay between federal employees and private-sector workers...
