I work as a Federal Employee and it can be damn demanding at times. Just like it was when I was in the Navy for 20 years. I choose this line of work because it is what I know. Tons of people above me make way more money than I do, including Obozo, Congress, Senate, all federal workers. Start with them and freeze their pay, benefits, etc. than I will have a sympathetic ear. Also Welfare recipiants are basically federal workers and do no work at all for their pay. We cannot strike in protest, get drug tested and have to go by way more restrictions than the average person does.
