    Wow Mike, I'm impressed. Have you ever seen the movie "Office Space"? It's a classic from 1999 or 2000. There is a great scene in there where one of the company's employees is being questioned by a management expert. A line from that scene goes something like this, "What exactly do you do here?"

  • fed income made public

    This isn't the first time fed salaries were made public. The problem is, as contained in the article, is that saying someone got a $60K bonus makes the general public think that's what we all get. My annual "bonus" for my GS 14-10 pay generally was around $300 after taxes, not enough to buy a cuppa joe everyday.

    Didn't the Washington Post publish federal salaries a few years ago? Also, those that receive $60K bonuses are usually either political appointees or political friends - not the real workers.

    Well, look at the details. These are not for your rank-and-file civil servants. These premiums for superior performance and big achievements disappeared about 5 years ago.

    But it's nice to see what alot of people make. There sure are a lot of high pay jobs out there in government land. Don't forget there are other branches, like US Courts, that pay reall well too. I would tell job hunters to avoid any job with furloughs because you see what real value your bosses place on you. Get skills and get marketable.

    Like that NSA dumping guy who made $200K+. I'm sure every GS scale govt IT person is wondering how that happens.
