Trust me, I work for the Government

Do know what they think about you?

E.T.I. 2009

Here are small excerpts of comments taken from MaineToday
The paper is well worth reading if you want to know what the public is thinking.
You should join
MaineToday and stay up with what the rest of Maine thinks. I only printed small bits because I was in the conversation.
This is your opposition. They are working with lies, hate, jealousy, and even some good intentions based on bad information. They leave comments, they talk to the papers, they talk to the legislature. Do you? Do your co-workers?
The worst is the intelligent and thoughtful comment made at the bottom of the page.
The reason it is so bad is that it is based on bad information. If we had received C.P.I. raises for the last 16 years we would not have a problem. We have actually gotten a pay cut

PLEASE READ FROM THE BOTTOM UP

NO, NOT HERE, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM :)

There was a time when unions were a necessity in this country, but those days are passed. Unions continue to ruin the economy in this country and states unions are the worst offenders.

The state has 1 secretary for every two workers.

Snow plow drivers getting paid through out the entire year even though it only snows for 4 months of the year?

I print the following link to the supposed proof that State employees are so highly paid because it proves nothing except we are not afraid of made up numbers. This is just more of the “I have a lousy job for a stinking company and you should suffer too!” type of thought. I hope you can get a real job, where someone respects what you do. I know you work hard for your family, if only your employer cared.
YOU deserve a good job, and benefits too!

State workers receive benefits packages that are 120 percent more than the private sector ($14,982 vs.$6,805)

State workers in social services are like garbage men, they do the job no one else wants, and you want to see your trash off your lawn right?

Government is not a business, and can’t be run like one. There are many issues in this State, but putting down State workers just because they want to get a raise is unfair.

I won’t defame state employees. Many I’m sure are hard working people like the rest of us. However, like the rest of us they should share the financial hardship this state’s economic policies have created.
Many Maine workers have gone at least one year without a pay increase let state and local employees do the same. After that wage increases in line with the regional C.P.I. would be fair. Finally all state employees should be placed on Dirigo Health. If it’s a cutting edge program like the Governor promotes, it should be good enough for government employees too.
