Letter: NSPS benefits some but hurts others

Regarding “DOD civilian workers to get performance paychecks tomorrow”: I certainly didn't fare better with NSPS, especially in the job I am in and never wanted to be in. I believe I am the victim of some sort of entrapment. The whole system went against me at the start.

I figure if an agency doesn't have a job I would be satisfied with or my supervisor doesn't want me to do more despite the many times I have requested more duties and mentioned that I have degrees, then I am the one who feels left out. How can a supervisor say that I am not going beyond what I am doing due to his or her refusal? I am the one who gets hurt over this. This also goes for applying for other jobs.

NSPS might benefit some people, but at the same time, it hurts others.
