Re: Trying to get a Government Job

That story is a load. Or more accurately it is titled quite creatively. The data doesn't show that a person working for the gov't makes double what another person does in the private sector FOR THE SAME JOB. It says that gov't workers are paid more but does not account for why. Mostly it is because the Fed delegates out the lower level jobs to contractors now.

Re: Trying to get a Government Job

Looks like the Feds are getting more professionally driven organization and ever. And most of these people can work anywhere so I would imagine the feds have to compete for their services. Hell, TSA agents are now making well over 60K nevermine those working in the hill, justice department, energy, high military brass (looks like Dates is going to ax some generals), treasury, state (yeah, you want to be in Iraq or Congo in the middle of the monsoon season?). No wonder D.C. is teaming with yuppies.

Federal Government Employment Stats

Note which departments hardly have any people.

What TSA are making 60?. My brother would probably be pretty mad to find out he was making not even 40 while everyone else is making 60K. Where did you find that info?

What most people forget about and don't account for is the benefits people receive while working for the feds.

Sorry, I didn't mean the imply the average salary was 60K. A friend of mine works for the TSA as Transportation Security Specialist...he's pulling in 60K a few years ago but the max range for that position is $103,563 now so who knows what he's pulling now.

I joined the government 2 years ago and have worse benefits now. I pay more for health insurance and have worse coverage. I also got 10% into my 401k whether I put any in or not. I do make more money now, though. I also get to boss around my old bosses. That is a nice plus.

Re: Trying to get a Government Job

Gov't Benefits used to be the cat's ass, but nowadays, you'll get equal or better benefits in the private sector. Now job security, that's a horse of a different color.
