Are Federal Employees Over or Under Paid? (VIDEO)

Hard-working Americans aren't getting the pay they earned - and if you're reading this, you're probably one of them. Even though corporate CEOs are getting paid more than ever, the cost of living has increased dramatically and the majority of working people are living paycheck to paycheck. 

But Did You Know That Includes Our Nation's Public Servants?  

Not politicians, of course, but the real public servants in our communities that keep our nation safe, healthy, and strong. Despite their tremendous contributions to the country, you don’t hear much about them since most of their jobs are done behind the scenes. 

The Truth is Public Servants...

From the air we breathe to the food we eat, to maintaining our country's roads and bridges, to developing cures to deadly diseases, government workers protect our communities and ensure every American has the opportunity to live a healthy life and pursue their own American dream.
