For the cartoonist, federal pay debates pay frequent dividends

Federal employee pay -- or the lack of -- has been the subject of several cartoons in recent months. I have looked at it from the perspective of several communities:

The general public…

The public POV

The contractors…

The contractor POV

And management…

The management POV

As you can see, federal employee pay rates have been a rich vein of cartoon potential, and we still haven't approached it from the point of view of the international community, teens or domestic pets. I realize these are all playing off of the same note -- federal pay is low -- and that there is an argument for the other side. I'll keep my eye out for an opportunity to draw the denizens of Downton Abbey discussing procurement reform.
