Gov't workers get pay that is 70% above similar workers in private industry, and tax payers will be on the hook for trillions in pensions and health benefits for decades....busting the budget....

I've looked into working at a couple of agencies and I'd have to take a 30-40% pay cut to work for the government. Plus I would get worse benefits.

Perhaps this is not the case for all careers, but the government pay scale is not very good from what I've seen.
