I posted this article, Is It called Pigs or Greed, I have extended another article to this, Wages Stink, these Public Servants who are whining about losing a days pay should be thankful that they are getting what they are getting paid, Fifty Thousand a year or better, there are a lot of people who would love to get that much a year, but are held back by working for the Private Sector not as a Public Servant, if a public servant worked under the same conditions as the private sector they would be lucky that they even had a job.

Let these public cry babies find out what it is like to not have a job and find out that private employment does not have job security, and they should not have any more job security than any one else.
Private sector does not have automatic pay raises or cost of living, they don’t have good medical, and they don’t have JOB SECURITY.
(Anxiety is rising among civilian workers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, who stand to lose up to a fifth of their pay)
It is not just Public Servants it is all Elected Government Agencies that don’t know the meaning of money and its worth who keep spending and handing out pay and medical to them selves and Public Servants like water.
Is It called Pigs or Greed that this Country now runs on, every time you turn around some Public Servant is complaining about losing one days pay or they don’t make enough, but they never think about the people who don’t even have a job and living on four times less than them, AND where their PAY CHECKS come from, it makes me sick to hear people talking like this, you would think that they would be trying to help people get back to work, because if this keeps up even public servants will be losing their jobs, for lack of tax money to pay their wages, then what will they do sue the taxpayer for not keeping them in a better life style.
Wages Stink at America’s Most Common Jobs

America’s most common jobs come with lousy pay.
Workers in seven of the 10 largest occupations typically earn less than $30,000 a year, according to new data published Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s a far cry from the nation’s average annual pay of $45,790.
Food prep workers are the third most-common job in the U.S., but have the lowest pay, at a mere $18,720 a year for 2012. Cashiers and waiters are also popular professions, but the average pay at these jobs tallies up to less than $21,000 annually. There are 4.3 million retail sales workers out there, making them the most common job, but the position pays only $25,310 for the year.
Among the 10 most popular professions, only the nation’s 2.6 million registered nurses earn a good living, bringing home nearly $68,000 a year on average. Another two of the most common jobs — secretaries and customer service representatives — have an average annual wage of about $33,000.
Wages have been in the spotlight this year as the debate over income inequality intensified. Middle-class Americans have been losing ground, as median household income dropped by more than $4,000 since 2000.
Part of this decline stems from a disappearance of middle-class jobs and an explosion of lower-paying ones. Some 58% of the jobs created during the recovery have been low-wage positions, according to a 2012 report by the National Employment Law Project. These low-wage jobs had a median hourly wage of $13.83 or less.
President Obama has been pushing to raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour, and several states are considering increasing their minimum wages.
