FEDERAL PAY CONTINUES RAPID ASCENT

While The Private Sector Lags Way Behind

And Suffers

 

 

The Cato Institutute

The George W. Bush years were very lucrative for federal workers. In 2000, the average compensation (wages and benefits) of federal workers was 66 percent higher than the average compensation in the U.S. private sector. The new data show that average federal compensation is now more than double the average in the private sector.

Figure 1 looks at average wages. In 2008, the average wage for 1.9 million federal civilian workers was $79,197, which compared to an average $50,028 for the nation’s 108 million private sector workers (measured in full-time equivalents). The figure shows that the federal pay advantage (the gap between the lines) is steadily increasing.

Figure 2 shows that the federal advantage is even more pronounced when worker benefits are included. In 2008, federal worker compensation averaged a remarkable $119,982, which was more than double the private sector average of $59,909.

What is going on here? Members of Congress who have large numbers of federal workers in their districts relentlessly push for expanding federal worker compensation. Also, the Bush administration had little interest in fiscal restraint, and it usually got rolled by the federal unions. The result has been an increasingly overpaid elite of government workers, who are insulated from the economic reality of recessions and from the tough competitive climate of the private sector.

It’s time to put a stop to this. Federal wages should be frozen for a period of years, at least until the private-sector economy has recovered and average workers start seeing some wage gains of their own. At the same time, gold-plated federal benefit packages should be scaled back as unaffordable given today’s massive budget deficits. There are many qualitative benefits of government work—such as extremely high job security—so taxpayers should not have to pay for such lavish government pay packages.

.

====================

.

This only goes up to 2008, I'm sure the statistics are equally as bad or worse now in 2011.

Notice what has happened in America. Mom and pop businesses, which used to be the backbone of the economy in this country, have drasticly dwindled. Three of the main reasons that I see are:

  • Being driven out by large conglomerates.
  • Bankrupted by rediculous, unneccessary, federal regulatory and environmental laws that are way too costly for small business to comply with.
  • Loss of market for small business created by our purposely derailed economy; that is, loss of manufacturing and other  jobs (all now in third world countries), combined with high taxes and health care.

In Hitler's Germany, most of the small businesses were destroyed, leaving the remaining employment opportunities to mostly the government sector,medical and education. These areas paid well and had job stability.

Employment in the government sector grew quite rapidly as government became dominant and huge. More departments were created to suppress and control every aspect of peoples lives such as the many social agencies  that spied and pried into families. It got to the point that if you wanted to eat and provide for your family, you joined the army.

This is a major part of how Hitler gained iron fist control over the German nation. If you wanted to eat or live, you did what the "Party" said.

America is evolving into this same scenario and few see it. The above article is but a telltale sign of it.
