57,000 Federal Bureaucrats On Paid Leave

By Chris Rossini

WashingtonPost reports:
Tens of thousands of federal workers are being kept on paid leave for at least a month — and often for longer stretches that can reach a year or more — while they wait to be punished for misbehavior or cleared and allowed to return to work, government records show.

During a three-year period that ended last fall, more than 57,000 employees were sent home for a month or longer. The tab for these workers exceeded $775 million in salary alone.
Those 57,000 are better off at home, rather than hassling the rest of us. However, that three-quarters of a billion dollars belongs back in our pockets.

What a racket the parasites have going.

  1. Think about how much more expensive it would be for us taxpayers if they were at work.
