Budget cuts, sequestration, government shutdowns — no wonder morale in the federal workforce has taken such a huge blow.
Gleaned from interviews with human resource leaders at 43 federal agencies, a report released in May revealed what many federal workers already know: Years of pay freezes, furloughs and government shutdowns have cast a cloud of uncertainty on their professional career and financial future.
According to the report:
One HR leader said, “I’ve had people ask me, ‘Why should I plan? I literally have no idea what my budget (will be) next year.’ Another said, ‘It’s a strange world. One day you’re on the chopping block and the next year you’re expanding.”
In such a strange state of affairs, which the report writers compare to the reality-TV show “Survivor,” it would be very difficult for anyone to be optimistic about the future, never mind being able to think as far ahead as retirement.
