I'm caught in the middle on this one.....I'm both a Trump supporter and a government employee. There was a freeze on salaries a few years back, and we went five years without a raise...but no one seems to remember that. Salaries are only a part of what it costs to employ someone, regardless of where they work. Our benefits have been cut every year since 2011, but again, no one seems to see that as significant.
Sweeping cuts are not the answer to the waste...especially what I see every day. The 'trimming of the fat' that everyone is clamoring for, needs to be done with a scalpel and not a chainsaw.
