If we count salary plus a dollar amount on benefits, as this article does, federal workers are paid entirely too much.
I'm not protesting the paychecks/benefits of law enforcement officers and teachers. In point of fact, given how much of themselves the really good ones give, they aren't paid enough.
However, those in other government jobs really shouldn't have the benefits they do, not at their pay levels and amount of actual work they do.
That goes more than double for federal workers in the legislative branch.
