The latest information from the Feds indicate that the AVERAGE federal government salary is now $123,000.

The number of federal government job salaries of $150,000 and up
has more than doubled under your incompetent manchild presidunce.

(this is why state gov. employees feel so entitled too!)

enough is enough!
