Sorry Dan, you are often right, but not this time. The Federal Salary Council has it right, government workers are underpaid for comparable work and qualifications, compared to the private sector. And please don't call the Council people "stooges". That's namecalling. People resort to namecalling when they don't have a valid argument.

The lie has been debunked over and over. The pay is higher, the retirement and health benefits are far in excess of the private sector, and the anciliary benefits are nothing short of disgusting. The taxpaying public is sick of the waste that is dumped into federal salaries and the sooner that we eliminate at least half of the civil services workers sucking the economy dry the better off the nation will be. Stop treading on us.

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.

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