I am leaving the public sector. My point is this, dont begrudge others for what they have. If you are unhappy in your position make a move, that's what I'm doing. The vast majority of people in the public sector are hard working dedicated people. They deserve every benefit they get and more. The media sensationalizes any bad apple amongst the bunch, and the mindless masses buy into it. There are people abusing the system, and those issues should be addressed swiftly. However to write off the entire public sector because of the actions of a few is unfair.<quoted text>
And if you're not happy with your job because "it's not all it's cracked up to be" and you need to be on your wife's insurance, why don't you make the change? After all, the cream always rises to the top, like you said.

Like nobody in the DPS ever works 3rd shift or holidays. And they get to pay into the social security system. You wouldn't know anything about that...you know since you have a guarenteed pension. Must really stink to work in the public sector. Do you get Bunker Hill day off? How about Evacuation Day? Arbor Day? Payroll Patriot Day? How many weeks of sick and vacation do you get? Did you know that sick time in the DSP is 10 days a year. And you can't bank all the hours and cash out when you leave...sick time has no cash value in the DSP. And you are not encouraged to use them. How Draconian eh?
Another thing...in the DSP you have to produce or you are out of the job. No matter how long your tenure.
State workers are over paid ...and over benefited!
