Does Federal Workers Earning Double Their
Private Counterparts Violate the Constitution?
USA Today recently did an analysis and found that “federal employees’ average compensation has grown to more than double what private section workers earn.” http://www.usatoday.com/money/economy/income/2010-08-10-1Afedpay10_ST_N.htm
Quoting from The People’s Guide to the United States Constitution, the portion covering the Preamble to our Constitution:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union [a group of independent states joined together for some specific purpose], establish justice, insure domestic [refers to one’s own country] tranquility [calmness], provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity [all of a person’s descendants; all future generations or future mankind], do ordain [to decree; order; establish; enact] and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Do you feel it is justice that federal workers earn more than double what private sector workers earn?
