It is easier for the President of the United States to fire the CEO of General Motors than it is to get a federal employee fired.
“Very few federal employees — in the hundreds, not the thousands — are ever fired on the basis of poor performance,” said Paul Light, a professor of public service at New York University.
That’s out of a federal workforce of 1.86 million, he said.
“If you want to fire an employee, you’re taking on a task that is very intense and difficult, and biased in favor of protecting employees, and it can take a year or more to complete,” Light said.
Does anyone see anything wrong with this?
