Gov Careers

Take a parting shot in 2010…

As we finish up 2010—and our first year of this blog—we’ve gotten a good measure of what the members of federal workforce think about a pretty broad range of issues.

Over the past year, some members of the media and Congress have counted on the general public’s stereotypical perception of government employees to help them sell agendas that squeeze the federal workforce. (Think “faceless bureaucrats.”)

But any non-fed reader of this blog will quickly see that you are as diverse—economically, socially, and politically—as any other part of the population.

So, in hopes of stirring up more of those diverse opinions you’ve offered over the past months, here’s one last question for the year:

Out of all the changes (emanating from Congress and the Administration) that have affected the federal workforce over the past year, which single one stands out as the most significant one affecting your own federal career?

Looking forward to your answers ...
