You are absoluitly right! THe welfare system is completely out of control,the system intent was for the one in need faceing hardship, disabled and elderly. Not a way of LIFE. IT sickens me to see all the able, drug addicts just plan scummbags recieving assistance.GO to walmart on the first of the month,what a terribly site, they have ruin our city.I myself was in desperate need of help a few years ago and was denied.THey stated with my work history i was capable of some type of work mind you i was totally disabled in a wheel chair WTF WE NEED CONTROL OF OUR WELFARE SYSTEM

He is a Roman. They don't know how to put together a simple sentence with using their hands. That hard to do and type too. By the way I edited you spelling on "sentence" if you don't mind.

They can't cut the pay so they will have to cut the hours. Just another way of cutting the pay.

Furloughs are happening at all levels of government.

The Federal government is BROKE, 60 cents of every dollar the Fed. spends is borrowed money, mainly from China. Do the math, a Fed. employee with a salary of 100,000 is getting paid 60,000 in money borrowed from China and 40,000 US. multiply times all Fed. , military, and social programs. This is unsustainable,if something does not change fast in a big way there will be no jobs at DFAS.

You know if you were offered one of those federal jobs you would be on here defending government. As it is you are flipping burgers some place so deal with it.

I first would like to start off by saying that definitive savings could be achieved by cutting the top two in charge of the DFAS Rome operation, both of which easily clear 6 figures to fill space. Did you know that their S.E.S. Director took on a $40 sign on bonus to move from another DFAS site to Rome, because no one else wanted the job? He was/is on the verge of retiring - why else would he come here...not exactly the "dream" last job before I retire situation. Secondly, their Deputy Director - always wants to cut back significantly - yet, takes it upon herself to rake in enough overtime hours to buy a house, and has no problems with their Director in Accounting doing the same.
The people who need it the most are the one's getting cut. Although furlough will be extremely bad for all - it is scum who takes advantage of the system that leads to reasons why our country is in this pain that it is in right now.
Oh yeah - not to mention POTUS is extremely charitable - how does $250M to Egypt and $500M to Palistine sound - when $85M is needed to keep approx 750K of our own working and pumping our earnings back in to the economy.

you tell a great story...SES employees can NOT get overtime. you can collet overtime up to GS 11, after that it is straight time collected. i do have to agree that DFAS rome is useless now & always been. it won't be long before they are gone. DFAS Indy did NOT want them to stay open. they are open because BRACC froced them.you talk about a $40 bonus to move to rome, big deal. Roy H was fired from being director a few years ago because of BIG security problems

DFAS is a perfect example of wasted taxpayer dollars. The staff could easily be cut by two-thirds if it was managed like the private sector. Too many people getting paid to websurf and chat with their friends all day long. Almost impossible to fire them after they attain "permanent" status no matter how worthless they are.

Maybe Israel will give the 8 billion in aid it receives back to us so that we can keep our federal workforce intact, but I doubt it.

Roy was the best thing about DFAS. He actually cared about the employees and their families. The ones in charge now never come out of their ivory tower to walk the floor. I don't know anyone who didn't like and respect him. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Roy should have been FIRED when he was director! He allowed a BIG security incident to happen, was investigated, problem was fixed at a cost of 100 of thousands in overtime-travel. He NEVER cared about his people, only makeing himself & steve bonta look good!He acts VERY bad at partys, very unprofessional!

First: pay freeze for last 3 years..it's not a pay increase, its a cost of living adjustment which is always in itself lower than the true increase in cost of living..and federal employees have gone without one in over 3 years.
Second: Most DFAS employees make under $40,000/yr and a lot are single parents.
Third: Some of you may know a DFAS employee, but please don't generalize by saying most, half etc when making negative comments. I know some too, but it's not near the majority at DFAS.
Fourth: Current management at DFAS is the worst since I've been there, the morale is very low, and it's because of the secrets, lies and games that senior management plays, DFAS has lost several good employees to early retirement, new jobs, other fed agencies, because working there has become unbearable for them.
Fifth: I do believe that DFAS-Rome will end up closing, I believe MR B. was brought here for that purpose since most of his policies and actions seem to be about destroying DFAS-Rome.
Sixth: I believe many in senior management don't care about DFAS-Rome if we go under they will just transfer to another DFAS-agency and they know it.
Seventh: Many DFAS employees work 2nd jobs to make ends meet..we are not overpaid!
Eighth: I never seen any of the negative comments about Roy H. in action and don't have reason to believe that any of them are true.
Thanks for reading. Have a great Easter weekend!
