Gov't workers get pay that is 70% above similar workers in private industry

This is a load of lard.

I have a sister-in-law who worked for HHS until her retirement a couple months ago. She was a pretty high grade employee, conducted seminars at the White House for government staffers, that sort of thing. After a 40-year career, she still made less than my human resource manager at a Chicago radio station.

My sister ran the PT Department at two Boston Hospitals (at different times.) She resigned that to be a teacher at a public college, and makes considerably less for the effort.

This is baloney. It carries the name "telegraph" after the "Author:" slug. You don't really need to know more.
