NSPS forces working class into 'indentured servitude'

In response to "Federal unions attack pay-for-performance effort," the National Security Personnel System is being forced down the throats of nonbargaining employees even though they would be eligible to be in a union. I see NSPS as another way of eliminating the seniority system and forcing the working class into indentured servitude position. It allows the "management level" to determine how you are rated and what your pay and retirement will be. It is very sensitive to the "Kissing Scale." Those who kiss the most rear go the highest.
