Government employees make approximately double the salary for comparable work performed in the private sector. Combine that, with the fact that once hired, these jobs are never down sized, eliminated, and no matter what the level of incompetence, malfeasance, or even the nuisance value leveled towards their employers, which is you and me, will these people ever lose their jobs.
