Do not Post Fake Job Openings

Do not mislead job applicants by posting job openings to public which already have candidates in mind. This will save tremendously time and cost (time = money), and reduce stress and disappointment for job applicants. I will also save hiring managers' and HR's time for posting such jobs.

Simple policy decision can save thousands of manhours.

Right now, mine operators are required to submit accident & injury data and production data to the Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA). They can submit forms 7000-1 and 7000-2 via web, email, fax, or hardcopy. Currently, over 10,000 hard copy submissions are received by the Office of Injury and Employment (part of DOL/MSHA/PEIR/ITC/SuppServices Division) EACH AND EVERY MONTH. This results in thousands of man hours ...more »

Flexible Federal Employment Options

Provide more flexible federal employment options, such as part-time FTEs, job sharing, or seasonal employment (i.e., three-quarters or half time work). This would allow the federal government to attract and keep talent that are unable to work a full-time job or people that have something to offer public service but don't want to pursue other endeavors. Federal employees should not have to quit their federal job and ...more »

Save Billions and Get More out of Paying Unemployment

Unemployment should be revised to be a more of Central "Job Corp" of sorts. Spending on unemployment when there is no work of value being performed is a losing proposition. My idea would be to still provide benefits, but the recipients would instead, be performing valuable work in return for the checks received. People could be employed in any number of areas on projects that range from Public Services to Infrastructure ...more »

Convert Bulky Employment Manuals to PDF

I suggest you eliminate large manuals that could be more easily, and cheaply, sent as PDFs than printed. One of the most egregious wastes of paper – and money – is the continued printing, despite the now-widespread use of PDFs, of pre-employment manuals; pre-appointment manuals; and office operations manuals, which are rendered more wasteful since they are constantly changing. A simple, easy, cost-cutting solution would ...more »

Save our money's value - Do away with the fiat system. Limit Spending, Now!

I suggest you...Do away with the fiat money system, in which, our money is not based on anything but faith. An economic equation should be used that factors in such values as population, employment, debt, productivity, harvested natural resources, etc. I am sure some economist can come up with a very appropriate equation that most countries could agree with adopting. I think is as simple as you cannot print more money ...more »

Stop using NTE employees. You are losing money in the long run, than if you hired permanently good hard working individuals. Believe it or not, there are definitive and tangible costs associted with using temporary workers.

Increase US Job Growth: Buy US-made products/materials

Please try to support American Industries by buying products produced out of Steel or Iron that is Made In the USA. This could be better implemented, if there is a percentage requirement as well (say, of 20% made in the USA materials). It will also increase job growth in the USA.

Government-wide Early Out Retirement for Employees Under CSRS

The Office of Personnel Management should direct all federal departments and agencies to offer early out retirements to employees under the older CSRS system. This will accomplish three things and effectively "kill three birds with one stone." One, it will take some of the most highly paid GS grade and step employees off of department/agency payrolls at considerable savings. Two, the cost to taxpayers for retired employees ...more »
