Most government workers are lazy because of the fact that they're protected by their unions, at least that's what I saw when I worked for a government agency. The fact that you virtually can't be fired means you don't have to try.

I am saddened by how much tax dollars are wasted by people who don't work. I used to be in a team of about 20 people, and only about 5 did actual work. Sheessh!
