Rewarding Federal Workers

Because they did such a bang-up job last year.

Under the Obama administration, the government is doing such a good job that it’s decided to reward itself. Last year, Uncle Sam paid out $408 million in bonuses to 1.3 million federal workers, according to the Asbury Park Press, which obtained the information through a Freedom of Information Act request. That’s about $80 million more than the previous year. About one in four federal workers received a bonus, and awards ranged from $25 to, in the case of one lucky State Department worker, $94,500.

We should really look at this as a “glass-half-full” story. Over the past two years, many folks have lost their bonuses, lost their jobs … some have lost their homes and their entire savings. We need to hear some positive news. To give us hope.

So, this is a tale of hope.

Of course, with the rest of us making less money, they’re going to have to raise our taxes in order to keep this up. But, I digress. This is supposed to be a post of HOPE.

    They so deserve it! Because pensions are based on highest salary. Big bonus = higher retirement pay! Win! Retire and let the schlubs pay me to drink martinis!
