Why are we paying Federal employees when they were " Furloughed" [ laid off ]?
If they were in the Public sector thay would apply for unemployment, have to put in a "waiting week "[ with no pay ]
So why are we the taxpaying people of this country paying these Federal " employees" full pay for the time they were " Furloughed"?
Just asking

Typical Liberal Behavior

Paying people not to work! The ghettos are filled with them. That's why they all vote for Democrats.

I agree with you there are too many people on welfare and the gov. has to look into this.
But can you tell me why a person in the public sector gets laid off or furloughed as they call it, has to put in a waiting week and lose a weeks pay then starts to get unemployment and a federal employee gets full pay when they are " furloughed"?
They were laid off so why are we paying them?
They are no better than a person working in the public sector and they should get unemployment that is it Not get full pay when they were laid off.
You want to cut the debt?
Have them put in a waiting week and collect unemployment like the people in the public sector not pay them full pay when they were laid off.

This entire "Shut Down" was a scam from day one!

There was no need to close down open area War Memorials. I've been to those memorials during late night hours. No security or anything costing money then.

They even blocked off parking areas on the highway in front of Mt Rushmore so people couldn't stop to view the Heads. The only reason for it was to pi ss people off so they could blame Republicans. People aren't that stupid! Only the stupid people believed it.

The administrators who chose to shut down the memorials were Bush-appointed Republicans. They chose to do it hoping to get back in power
National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis shut down the memorials. Jonathan B. Jarvis was confirmed by the United States Senate on September 25, 2009. President Barack Obama nominated Jarvis for the directorship following the resignation of Mary A. Bomar on January 20, 2009, the day of President Obama's inauguration.

That is another Tea Party lie
The head of the National Park Service should step down over his handling of the government shutdown, House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa told POLITICO on Wednesday.

“Three strikes and you should be out,” Issa (R-Calif.) said after a five-hour hearing in which he and other Republicans lambasted park service Director Jonathan Jarvis for closing monuments on the National Mall, as well as the agency’s earlier handling of the sequester and its decision to let Occupy Wall Street protesters camp out on federal land.“He blew it on sequestration. He blew it on Occupy, and now he admits he doesn’t even think it was his responsibility to plan to mitigate [the shutdown’s harm].”

Asked if he thinks Jarvis should resign, Issa said:“Yes, I believe he should resign. But the better term probably is I think he should retire because he no longer serves the public in their interest.”

Earlier in the hearing, Jarvis took responsibility for closing sites like the World War II Memorial, saying his almost entirely furloughed staff didn’t have enough people to keep them open safely. But he jabbed back at Issa’s repeated complaints that the agency hadn’t planned well enough for the shutdown that took effect Oct. 1.

“What I do is I open parks and operate parks, not planning for a closure,” Jarvis said.

Issa called that remark “a sign that he doesn’t care about keeping the parks open and minimizing damage and serving the public.”

In earlier testimony Wednesday, Jarvis told members of Issa’s panel and the House Natural Resources Committee that the White House didn’t dictate how the park service handled the closures, although he said he and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell had “presented” its shutdown plans to a White House official during a telephone conversation.

“The monuments and memorials on the National Mall do not take care of themselves,” Jarvis told the lawmakers.“Our rangers are there to prevent vandalism and impact to the monuments and the memorials. All of those rangers have been furloughed.”

Jarvis said the furloughs hit all but 12 of the 300 park service employees who usually work on the Mall.“As much as there has been talk of open-air monuments that are unmanned, they are not unoccupied,” he said.

Jarvis, who was testifying under subpoena, said he didn’t know whom he had spoken to at the White House about the shutdown plans but promised to provide that information to lawmakers.

Issa and other Republicans at the hearing accused Jarvis’ agency of showing a pattern of apparent political bias, stretching as far back as its decision in 2011-12 to allow Occupy Wall Street protesters to camp out and “defecate” at Washington’s McPherson Square. They questioned why the park service has barricaded sites like the Lincoln Memorial that stayed open during the 1995-96 government shutdowns.

But Issa isn’t done yet. He issued a subpoena to Jarvis on Wednesday demanding records including “all documents referring or relating to the National Park Service process for handling proposals for budget modifications related to sequestration.” Additional document requests will be coming later, his staff said.

In lambasting Jarvis’s handling of the shutdown, Issa cited a column in The Washington Times that quoted an anonymous “angry Park Service ranger” as saying that “we’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can.”

“If true, and I have no reason to doubt the truthfulness of that quote, it is indeed disgusting and despicable that the park service would do this,” Issa said at the hearing, being held jointly by his committee and natural resources.

Jarvis rejected the quote.

Lucky you're retired. You would have been furloughed as non-essential personnel.

I have never worked for the Feds
I applied for a Fed job back when I was still in college around 1978 or so. It was for a "Federal Protection Officer" or something like that which was pretty much a security guard job at the Federal Building downtown. I think the job paid about $10,000 back then. The job announcement said there were eight openings and only six people showed up to take the test. Four of the other people taking the test looked pretty retarded, so I figured I was a shoe in for the job. I was called in for an interview and they told me I scored first on the test. I asked about the 8 openings and the fact only six people took the test. They told me that vets didn't have to take the test, and that the civilians would only be hired if they ran out of vet applications.
OK, I understand Viet Nam vets should be given extra points on the test, but just to hand them the job was effed up. I probably would have gotten sick of being a lobby guard and would have moved on anyway
As far as the liar thing, I didn't even read your post. I was just fishing for a reaction. That is what I do
You're not fooling anybody.
