Letter: Many will gladly accept a position with SES

Regarding "SES pay is broken, critics say"

Nobody has forced any member of the Senior Executive Services to apply for or accept a SES position. A SES member has not created anything, as opposed to a small business owner or an employee of a corporation. The SES members are public servants and should not seek personal gain from their job. Many will gladly accept a SES position.

If there are some who don't like SES positions, leave the government and shut up! Stop whining!
