Despite progress in confirming a new secretary and deputy secretary, DHS still features a large number of officials in acting roles. Former Secretary Tom Ridge told lawmakers the department cannot build nor sustain a mission-focused culture with so many non-permanent positions. NTEU says pay freezes, budget cuts and the government shutdown are more to blame for low morale across DHS and the entire government.

Once shutdown ends, employee morale slump likely awaits

For every day that the government shutdown drags on, federal managers face a potentially growing morale crisis in the federal-employee ranks.
