At issue is human “spite” and how it affects economic development. If you’ve ever dealt with public employees, certainly you know them to be some of the most spiteful monkeys in the barrel. They are capricious and angry, they forget who they work for, and they wield power arbitrarily. Somehow, you feel lucky when they actually do their jobs.
Caveat: Some aren’t bad. But WHY do we have to accept it at all?
Yes, firing them is next to impossible, but setting up new rules for hiring them is easy as pie.
The GOP should promise to establish a Civil Service Personality Exam for all public employees that weeds out those who don’t realize their job is to make private life easy.
