This is disgusting on so many levels. First and foremost is the notion that any government job is productive. Since the government does not derive revenue by providing essential goods or services that could not be provided by the private sector, their only source of revenue is.....TAXES!
So in order for a government employee to get paid, the government must first take your money from you and give it to these people. They in turn, give a little of your tax money back to the government under the illusion that they too are paying their taxes. The fact of the matter is that it was your money, taken from you that they are paying their taxes with.
No wealth is created in this process,only a transfer of income from you to them, and; as you can see, an incredible amount of government waste is allowed to occur...think about it, how come the state of illinois didn't shut down with all of these people not working at their government jobs that day?????
