Russia to Fire 100,000 Bureaucrats in Next 3 Years
Obama-Pelosi Regime Russia to Fire 100,000 Bureaucratic Jobs in Next 3 Years
Even Russia is getting serious about their economic future.
Too bad, that’s not the case here in the US. Instead, the Obama-Pelosi regime will double the $11 trillion national debt in 5 1/2 years and triple it after 10 years.
RiaNovosti (Russian News) reported:
Russia will cut its army of bureaucrats by more than 100,000 within the next three years, saving 43 billion rubles ($1.5 billion), Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said on Monday.
“We assume more than 100,000 federal state civil jobs will be cut within three years. The government has already included a schedule for cutting the number of federal civil servants in the draft budget for the next three years and coordinated it with ministries and agencies,” Kudrin told President Dmitry Medvedev, who in June ordered a 20 percent cut in the number of bureaucrats.
Under the government plan, ministries and agencies will have to sack five percent of their staff in 2011 and 2012, and 10 percent in 2013.
Kudrin said that a government commission had found that 1,468 government positions were redundant, 263 duplicated each other and 868 required investigation to find out if they were necessary.
