How good is a government job? We all know that government workers get generous pensions, job security and health benefits.
Now a new USA Today analysis reports that it's almost impossible to lose a federal job.
Federal Employees who work at the Environmental Protection Agency, the Small Business Administration, or more than a dozen other government agencies "are more likely to die of natural causes than get laid off or fired...."
Death is the "primary threat" to their job security.
The federal government fired only about one-half of one percent of its entire workforce last year. In the private sector, the percentage of workers who get fired for "poor performance" is 5 times higher.
How much do you get paid with that kind of job security?
Twice as much as private sector counterparts.
Give me a break.
