That is more like Dick. You are correct the FCC is mostly lawyers and that
makes sense since the function is mostly regulatory. But there are plenty
of engineers sprinkled amongst the lawyers to help explain to them how
things work ;-)
Last time I checked the Fed employee population was right around 14.5M.
That is about 10% down from 1990 numbers. The game is played like
this...cut fed jobs hire more contractors...next time around convert the
contractors back to fed employees.
Its popular for some folks to whine about the size of the Fed gov. but what
do you think it would do to our recession if Uncle Sam Rif'd say 4-5Millions
Fed workers? Hey, think of it as a job program. Keeps people off the
streets, they pay taxes and they don't compete for the nice private sector
You know out of all those folks some work gets done for us tax
payers...there are a couple other places that could really use some
attention, like local, county and state gov.
