I don't know how many public employees you've been in contact with, but nearly all of the ones I know and have known, were hardworking and committed to serving the public good.

You might recall that for years, the salaries of public servants was backloaded - their salaries low, while benefits rich.

The only reason why the overall compensation of public employees is now so competitive, is because compensation in the private sector has fallen so far from previous levels.
