Elected Public Officials CAN NOT be allowed to give themselves Increased Benefits and Pay without public approval

Elected Public Servants can not vote for their own pay raises and benefits.

Double dipping - retired and rehired.

I suggest you revisit the authorities for rehired annuitants and others that are double dipping. It appears that it is often abused and that senior Federal employees benefit from these authorities the most. Yikes! I suspect that the nation would be better off bringing in new talent in terms of cost. Yes, there are growing pains and training costs, but the govt as a large employer carries a big part of the responsibility... more »

Reduced Work Week

Allow full time employees (especially parents) the option to work 32 hours per week with a commensurate reduction in salary (i.e., 20% reduction in pay and benefits). Most salaried employees will get just as much done in a shorter work week and be grateful for the opportunity to spend more time with their families. The reduction in salaries will save a great deal of money and the famliy friendly policy will make happier,... more »
