Thanks for weighing in William — I can appreciate your perspective, and for many, attempts to offset the effects of the freeze may seem like ‘fluff stuff’.
Let me make sure I have not misled you — I have no clue what OPM is doing along these lines — I know that conversations about this are going on at GSA where I work, and I am fairly certain that the leadership in other agencies is grappling with the issue too. Hearing what the affected employees in the federal workforce think could help to inform those discussions.
I think your idea of putting outside employment back on the table is an interesting idea… certainly it is outside speaking engagements and appearances that helps provide additional compensation to political leaders…. and, if things get bad enough to bring on furloughs, then outside employment could really become important.
Thanks again for weighin in.
