We all have something that we finally agree on: government employees are lazier than those in the private sector. Even 46 percent of Uncle Sam’s workers agree, a plurality in a new poll.

According to Rasmussen Reports, just 8 percent of all Americans believe that government employees are the hardest workers, with 66 percent saying that private sector employees are the hardest workers.

No surprise there, but government workers agree. Rasmussen said in a Friday poll that 46 percent of government workers believe their private sector counterparts work harder than they do, while just 32 percent say the opposite.

    I’ve made it one of my never hire mottos. I realize they’re all not like this,

    But I’ve said I would never again hire a former state or government employee, after a hiring a couple and witnessing their mindset, they have got to be the laziest dumbest bastards I ever met.
    I use to call them 12K dollar a year rocket scientists.
    The only reason they’re on the taxpayer payroll is because no-one else would hire them.

    Thumb up +1
