What took so long

Today President Obama announced a two year freeze on federal workers’ pay. Thank goodness, thought this freeze is about three years late (yes, something his predecessor should have implemented).

We ALL have to make sacrifices during these tough economic times. So far federal workers (for the most part) have been shielded from the downturn in the economy.

No WHINING federal workers. We (yes I’m one too but w/ a different branch) still have jobs and our salary has not been cut by 5 or 10% nor have we been furloughed.

Let’s keep things in perspective. It could be worse if we lived in Iceland, Greece, the UK or Ireland.
