The National Federation of Federal Employees Union (NFFE) Whines of Draconian Pay FreezesPosted by Al @ 8:48 am
Yet another bunch of overpaid whining Federal employees decrying the Federal Worker pay freeze as a draconian measure. It’s time to end the taxpayer supported unions. Anyway, enjoy the whine from NFFE, found here:
This pay freeze proposal, if adopted by Congress, would significantly impact the bottom line of federal workers in both the short and long term. A two-year pay freeze will set back your bottom line right away, while diminishing your retirement annuities in the long run. It will also diminish the government’s ability to recruit and retain top talent at the federal agencies that protect our borders, care for our veterans, support our armed forces abroad, and provide countless other essential services to the American people…
Taken together, the immediate and future impact of this pay freeze will hurt federal employees, their families, and the American public they serve. We cannot accept this future for ourselves and for our country. We understand that sacrifices will have to be made to reduce our deficit, but we cannot be led to believe that we can balance our budget exclusively on the backs of federal employees. Everyone will have to sacrifice. National President Dougan has been in touch with the White House on the matter and will continue to express our opposition to this draconian proposal.
