I work for a county government in Georgia. We’ve undergone job cuts for two years with no relief in sight. No filling open positions and no hiring. No salary increases at all and benefits are becoming more expensive. Departments are depending on new automated processes to help with the additional workload which means more work for the IT Department to support these new “labor saving” efforts, additional work that is never anticipated by the affected departments, so the IT workload increases even more.
I am glad to have a job but burnout is taking a toll on all of the count workers, we can only “do more with less” for so long.
