Since His First Day in Office Barack Obama Has Hired 101 New Federal Employees on Average Each Day

Federal Workers Make Twice As Much As the Private Sector

USA Today

Since Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office in January 2009 he has created on average 101 new federal employees each day.
Andrew Malcolm at Investor’s Business Daily reported:

You may have noticed some economic difficulties across the country in recent years among family, friends, neighbors, colleagues. One sector is doing quite nicely, however, under Barack Hussein Obama.

In the 1,420 days since he took the oath of office, the federal government has daily hired on average 101 new employees. Every day. Seven days a week. All 202 weeks. That makes 143,000 more federal workers than when Obama talked forever on that cold day in January of 2009.

Under Obama the total federal workforce has surpassed two million for the first time since the first Clinton term, now sitting about the 2.2 ,million level.

Federal workers have been awarded bigger average pay and benefit increases than private employees for nine years in a row. The compensation gap between federal and private workers has doubled in the past decade.

Now comes a new poll revealing that Americans know what’s going on. A majority of Americans believes government workers make more money than private sector workers, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll. Sixty-one percent of private sector workers believe that.

Surprisingly, Republicans, independents and Democrats are united in agreement that government employees have it better than private sector workers although, predictably, Dems are slightly less sure.

“The federal workforce has become an elite island of secure and high-paid workers, separated from the ocean of average American workers competing in the global economy,” according to a report this year by the Cato Institute.

    He’s trying to single handedly reduce the unemployment numbers….on our dime. Is he diabolical or really stupid? Those are the two choices….and either way….he should never have made it to the White House.

    A brilliant strategy! Maybe Choomboi should give Federal jobs to ALL Americans and raise the standard of living in this country.

    This happened at 3:00 PM, Saturday. Broad daylight.

    They’ll be fine additions to OFA’s Domestic Army, and I have no doubt that is where they will be headed.

    To the front of the line.

    No Limit N*&&4z. Just doin’ they thug thizzle.

    Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino’s star-studded Next Big Flick comes out on Christmas. Starring, we all know, Jamie Foxx as Django, who is an escaped slave who gets “to kill every white person in the movie” (which Foxx expressed joy at on the last Sat. Nite Live).

    Zimmerman will probably be released and all charges dropped around then, as well.

    2013 is going to be a nationwide “Kill Whitey” event, if the Media and the Democrats get their way.

    They were all sitting around doing nothing when obama came into office. We just have 143,000 more drones in the government bureaucracy. More than likely all of them are either blacks, communists, socialists or other types of liberals. And all want to change America to their unattainable Utopia.

    I must be working for the wrong Federal Gov’t!! I have been a DoD employee for 10 years, and I make nowhere near that average pay that is stated in the article. I’m at the top of my pay grade, and we haven’t had a pay raise in 3 years. Where are all those other Fed employees making all of the BIG money??

    Please don’t group all Federal employees in the same boat. Most of the people I work with are non-union, hard working, blue collar people just glad to have a job. We have been on the verge of furlough 3 times in the last year, due to all of the idiots in DC. Funny how the workers get furloughed, while the managers don’t. That about says it all!!

    From where I stand, it seems to me you could eliminate several levels of management that make up the “system”. Between myself and the boss, there are three levels. Why??

    Federal Workers Make Twice As Much As the Private Sector

    At one time, I remember that working for any government entity didn’t pay as well as the private sector, but the big benefit was job security.

    How things have changed, and not necessarily for the better.

    The 55K increase at DoD and 30K increase at federal hospitals (like the VA) account for over half of the new employees. And if you include the losses at Post Office, they just about break even.

  • Limousine Barry

    I have turned public service on it’s head!

    Now, the government employees are the new Kings!

    And, they have the right to tax you into the ground!

    I love a good scam!

    Any bets that 70 to 80 percent hired by the Feds are minorities? With the Obama/Holder alliance with a policy of promoting anyone or anything that is not white, you can count on it. This assures 100% of future votes will be Democrat.

    Of course one of the things the article fails to mention is that the reason the public sector is doing better than the private sector is because for decades private sector management has put making profits above treating employees well. That’s why middle class wages have stagnated. That’s why even now during the tail end of the worst recession in history (not depression but recession) American companies are *still* making record profits, even as they downsize and gut benefits and salaries.

    Once you know that it’s instantly clear who is to blame for the situation, and it’s not the public sector.

    Those salary and benefits numbers are exaggerated. The average fed employee is a GS-11 who makes around $65K/ year, so the salary and benefits are exaggerated by about 25%. Most fed employees have more experience, more time in service and more education than their private sector counterparts. In addition the feds contract out most low skilled jobs so the low income jobs found in the private sector, janitorial for instance, are not found within federal service. Those factors account for some of the difference between the salaries of feds and the private market.

    Don’t get me wrong, I know federal employees are overpaid, under worked and their benefits are obscene but these numbers greatly overstated.
