Letter: Deal with AWOL feds and praise the rest

Regarding "Senator: Fed workers miss millions of hours": Public or private sector, there are those who abuse the system. AWOL federal employees should be dealt with, and management should hold employees at all levels accountable. Management should also be held accountable for inaction.

There are many federal employees throughout this country who report to work each day, schedule their leave accordingly and operate within the bounds of the rules. Kudos to my fellow co-workers who keep the government operating, services provided and missions supported. Thank you.

B. Johnson
Federal Aviation Administration
