Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

Federal jobs are not the easiest or the best-paid, but at least they're secure. Or so the thinking went.

That finding comes from a Senior Executives Association survey on the possibility of at-will employment. SEA President Carol Bonosaro discussed it with Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp.
