Records (finally) released by the Phoenix VA Health Care System, describe how $10 million in bonuses were dished out to 90% of employees.

Records show 4,188 bonuses were paid over the past three fiscal years to more than 2,150 employees, including doctors, nurses, administrators, secretaries and cleaners. Nearly 650 VA employees received a bonus in each of the three years. The VA has about 2,500 employees.

    Imagine how large the bonuses would be if they did a GOOD job at the VA.

    OTOH, maybe their present lack of ‘give-a-damn’ is why they got bonuses in the first place.

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s morally and philosophically wrong to give bonuses to civil servants? People who sign up for these gigs are supposed to understand that you take it on the chin financially, but will enjoy superior benefits and job security.

    Leave the bonuses to the private sector.
