Does that not seem like way too many people? Can we not do without some of these people?

Do we know they're not talking about management? :mrgreen:

One can dream !
I posted on another similar thread that in my business experience one starts at the top and middle mgmt. with pink slips... working down to lower mgmt and the real producers..
When mgmt overload is thinned everyone and everything else gets better . producers often get more money more jobs and efficiency... everybody wins.. employees, company, and customers.

The gov. not depending on profit and customer satisfaction for its income does not suffer the same hard realization. Ah, no use beating a dead horse.

To dream the impossible dream,

Wouldn't it make you nervous if you were in the real [ read: private industry ] world and you were labled non essential? You would know your head was on the chopping block...

...but in the public realm, no worries...

This slow down (honestly...nothing is getting "shut down") is the radical left's worst nightmare.

Sooner or later, the masses will realize that the country will get along just fine without these "non-essential" people, and even wonder why those positions/departments were being propped up on our dime anyway. It's an "outing" of government waste and taxpayer abuse.
 

Awesome!

I was thinking the same thing. In the private sector, we lose funding all the time delaying or shutting down our projects. While its sad people have to suffer that hold these jobs, its nothing new in the private sector, where Bama has never been and couldn't handle.

Like who? Identify them.

The # of govt employees has been substantially cut under Obama, from Bush. The fed is not known for having an overabundance of staff, except in the Defense Dept. (ever try to get service from a person in the Social Security Admin or other fed agency? People complain about it as evidence of inefficient bureaucracy, and then they complain about increasing the federal budget to hire more staff to service the country).

You tell us. How many people in all the different agencies does it take to service 313 million people?
