Letter to the editor
In regard to "Doing more with fewer feds" [FCW.com, Nov. 8], I notice that the author
of this letter appears to be blaming President Bush for the cuts. I wonder
where he/she was several years ago when the Clintons were heavily into the
"outsource government jobs" mode?
Granted that many parts of our base have mandated staffing problems
that impact other departments, but it has been that way for more than a
year, longer than Bush has been president.
Regarding the 10 hours of overtime, that is nothing if you are an engineer
working for a place like Motorola Inc., where friends of mine went to work.
Of course they also get 30 percent more pay and real medical benefits, not
the garbage civil service gets.
