And Another Reason To Vote For Trump... Or Cruz.

One quarter of federal workers might quit if Trump wins
But wait a minute. How many would quit if Cruz wins? His ranking is even better than Trump's. I'm betting that zero quit their cush, high paying, low risk jobs; they'll have to be canned, if the government is ever to be reduced to a no-debt, fiscally responsible, taxpayer responsive unit.

As a (former) government career employee and manager, I could only WISH that they would quit. They are merely virtue-signaling to the rest of the herd. They absolutely will NOT quit those cushy high-paying jobs, where actually accomplishing something, ANYTHING, using them is only a manager's fantasy.

The SJWs completely took control of the bureaucracy a long time ago. Consequently, you can be accused and ruined career-wise, without ever having a chance to confront your accuser(s). I have had a long-standing approach to any "threat:" execute the "threat" or I'll shove it up your ass. It might not work for everybody, but it certainly worked for me.

My solution to the Civil Service "no fire" rules? I would tell the "non-fired" person that I no longer had a job for them to do, and that they had to report to the Director for work reassignment. In short order, I'd get a call from the Director, wanting to know what in hell he/she was supposed to do with this person. My answer: not my problem; since I can't fire them, YOU have a new employee to reassign, so YOU figure out what you are going to do with them. They no longer work on my projects. They didn't actually lose their job, but they sure as hell no longer worked for me, being net-negative producers. My burning ambition was to work on interesting (to me) technical projects, and I didn't give a rip about going up the bureaucratic promotion ladder. Since I was the project manager "fireman" (putting out project fires that other managers had created through incompetence), I got away with a lot more than anybody else. They really have no idea what to do with competent people who refuse to "go along to get along." Sadly, there are only a very few who do NOT "fit the mold."
