UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRATION SOLUTION: SELF FUNDED DETERRENT PREVENTING THE HIRING OF UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS

I suggest a new type of proactive solution in the form of an enforcement system to deter the hiring of undocumented workers (illegal aliens, deportable/inadmissible aliens) through self funded economic incentives (monetary rewards) generated by fines. It will encourage the public to report violators and discourage employers from hiring undocumented workers. A percentage of the fines levied on employers of undocumented ...more »

Save Hundreds/Thousands of Dollars on Health Care Premiums by Offering a 2-Party Health Care Plan

The Federal Government and its employees could save hundreds of dollars each month if there was a 2-Party health care plan option offered, not just a Family plan. I was a single parent for 15 years (just recently married) and all other employment before working for the Government offered 2-Party plans. My insurance premium more than doubled (nearly tripled) going to a Family plan. Besides single parents, there are a lot ...more »

CONDITIONAL RESIDENT CARDS. A TRUE SOLUTION TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

There are not 100 illegal immigrants in the USA….. There are thousands. A CONDITIONAL RESIDENT CARD should be given to immigrants who DO NOT have a criminal record for murder, rape, DUI, or domestic violence. Those illegal immigrants who, at any point in their stay in the US, committed those crimes, should get DEPORTED to their country of origin right away. Illegal immigrants should pay a fine of $2,000 to $6,000 if ...more »

Let Married Coworkers Share Accommodations

Let husbands and wives that are working together in the field stay in the same hotel room. Currently, it is many agencies policy to pay for two hotel rooms regardless of whether or the two employees are married and plan to stay in only one room. Agencies will pay for adjoining rooms, but that doesn’t make much financial sense. By allowing for husbands and wives to rent one room as they would like to do anyways, and not ...more »

Create a national veteran education benefit contract

Create a national contract for education benefits for veterans - billed to a single payer station in VA (similar to a GSA schedule). Veteran may choose any university where they can be accepted at the negotiated contract rate. Offer veterans incentives to choose lower priced accredited education, such as online programs - and the veteran will receive 25% of cost savings or extended benefits.

Work Camps

Unemployment in this country is at emergency levels. Welfare recipients need not just be given food, clothing and housing, but they need to learn some valuable life skills. Since this is an emergency, I suggest that FEMA set up camps (similar to those set up for hurricanes and natural disasters) that are designed to put the welfare recipients to work. Anyone who wants to receive free government benefits is welcome ...more »

Reduce Payroll Costs

I suggest each individual submitting an idea which obviously increases costs to the government be counseled by a superior who also evaluates fitness for the job. It is clear many ideas are submitted by individuals with no concept of the term "SAVE MONEY".and simply cannot follow instructions. Give me cellular modems, give me a car, give me benefits. Give ME a break! Get rid of these selfish "Gimme Gimme" employees ...more »

End Temporary Seasonal and NTE Employment to Permanent Seasonal and PFT

I suggest you change Temporary Seasonal employees to Permanent Seasonal Employees and Not To Exceed employees in to Permanent Full Time employees, expecially those that come back year after year. We spend so much money on hiring, training, and separating our Temporary Seasonal employees when we could be using this time and money to do meaningful work. Also I know from experience how discouraging it is to work as a NTE ...more »
