TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! ESSENTIAL GOVERNMENT WORKER COMPLAINTS IN KANSAS CITY GROW LOUDER AS BORDER WALL SHUT DOWN CONTINUES!!!



We're starting to hear back from denizens of our blog community as the shut down drags on and the local complaints are growing louder.

While the typical ranting against Prez Trump is to be expected, it has been surprising that most of the local talk actually doesn't blame the Prez.



Instead . . .

ONE OF THE BEST CRITICISM WE'VE HEARD IS FROM ESSENTIAL KCMO GOVERNMENT WORKERS REVEALING SHUT DOWN UNFAIRNESS!!!

Here's the word . . .

"In this shut down it's the essential Federal employees who are really being treated unfairly. While other workers are going to get what is tantamount to a paid vacation, the rest of us working are basically losing our annual leave and taking a major financial hit."

Again . . .



We remind locals that KC is home to around 50K federal employees in the metro and a great many of them are working through the shut down and will not only be bad mouthed by the media and Conservatives but also suffer economic hardship as well.

Tough one for the President. He's going to have to make a deal here and cut his losses. Only this time there are a lot more people calling out the defeat in the border wall battle.

Jr. said...

^^^ But not the war? This debate isn't over by a long shot.

He may not get this one but I think what most are overlooking is the public demand for greater border security, even in "progressive" polls. Those numbers are still VERY high.

Trump is losing this one. No doubt about it.

Get a clue guys, this is not Trumps fault, it's Nancy and chuck's fault!!!!! They both called for a wall years ago and now that Trump wants a wall it's a diffrent story!

My family member is an essential worker which means he has to work without pay, and we are willing to go as long as it takes!!!!!

This is the fault of the DEMOCRATS!!!!!!!!!!!

Good way to slim down the government workforce even further, shut it down.

Tony you are a useful idiot on issues like abortion, taxes and socialist transportation but you are still a grease-stain on this beautiful White country and you should shut your dirty cum filled mouth on this issue. We do not need more of your type in this country, and once the wall is built and it will be built we should have gun turrets in towers every so many hundred yards to keep back you brownies. If that means feeding the vultures and crows with dead brownie parts so be it. Jack off muchacho you greaseballs need to go home, and that will be the next step that Mr. Trump takes and it cannot happen too soon.

Why would Trump lie about Mexico paying for the wall? If they are paying for it like he claims through the re-worked NAFTA deal, then why does he want the US taxpayers to pay for it? That doesn't make sense! Why is he lying to us????

The average Federal worker kicks our fuckin asses with the money we give them.

"The federal government employs 2.1 million civilian workers in hundreds of agencies at offices across the nation.1 The federal workforce imposes a substantial burden on America’s taxpayers. In 2017 wages and benefits for executive branch civilian workers cost $276 billion.2

Since the 1990s, federal workers have enjoyed faster compensation growth than private-sector workers. In 2016 federal workers earned 80 percent more, on average, than private-sector workers.3 And federal workers earned 42 percent more, on average, than state and local government workers.4 The federal government has become an elite island of secure and high-paid employment, separated from the ocean of average Americans competing in the economy.

When benefits such as health care and pensions are included, the federal compensation advantage over private workers is even larger, according to the BEA data. In 2016 total federal compensation averaged $127,259 or 80 percent more than the private-sector average of $70,764, as shown in Figure 2."

The real losers are the American citizens for having a lying, cheating, disgraceful bunch of idiots in Washington. Congress is not representing the people who elected them as they only care about themselves and their own power. Look at how Claire whined after she lost.

American citizens would probably be better off having a bunch of homeless representing them in Washington.

All members of Congress needs to be replaced.


It is sad when we have some people trying to do what the people and the rest are just stonewalling.

chuck said...

^^^^^ They can afford to sit out a little white and count their fuckin cash. The Public Sector Unions that are killing Ca. Ill. and Conn. are a good example of what is headed our way if the automatic pay increases for these folks don't stop.

My best fiend's oldest brother worked for the Fed (Doing bullshit make work for 25 years.) here in that fancy new building downtown.

His job was phased out and he spent the last 5 years reading paperbacks in his office and "working" 30 hours a week. It was such a joke.

This type of ROI is standard procedure for "Protected" Federal employees who can NEVAR be fired.

ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES VOTE DEMOCRAT SO IT'S NOT LIKE TRUMP WILL LOSE ANY SUPPORT FROM ACTUAL HARD WORKING MIDDLE CLASS PROLES.

Keep it shut down forever.

chuck said...

I forgot to mention, my best friend's brother, wait for it..., made $250,000.00 a year.

No shit people, no shit.

Federal workers, like members of Congress, NEVAR had to suffer through Obama Care and pick up the HUGE tab for the transfer of wealth to Obama voters.

Just shut the border down. Until we have border security the border stays closed. Let's see what the democrats do now.

Again, Democrats have said they are willing to double what Trump wants for Border Security, just not his useless fucking wall. Why are you dipshits so hung up on a wall? Do you really think migrants won't figure out a way to get over, under, or around it? Be honest. I think someone said it the other day, the Wall is like catnip for dumbshits.

Trump is never getting the fucking wall so just move on.

This is a major defeat for Trump. Pelosi is calling the shots and there will be no money for this idiotic wall which Mexico was supposed to pay for. Why should the dems give him anything? They are calling the shots. He had two years with a republican house an senate to get his wall. He failed then, he's failing now.

Chuck-the maximum federal pay is $189,600. Did your best fiend's (sic) brother have to give blow jobs on the side to earn the extra?

8:59 Hey dipshit, haven't you seen pictures of the proposed sections of the wall? Do you really think illegals will be able to climb over that without getting caught? Walls work. Just ask any rich, Hollywood liberal idiot. It would definitely slow down illegal immigration and will help create choke points so that they can be apprehended easier. We all know how you libshits need votes from those illegal immigrants, but get over it.

Keep in mind that the essential and non-essential workers will get full pay once the budget amendment is passed. So like today is the 12th day of paid vacation for them. Suck it up.

chuck said...

You Progressives are so lucid and rational. In California, if you use a plastic straw, you might actually go to jail. But if you break the law, sneak in illegally (And Vote Democrat, because the Democrats have lost the white middle class.), you get free government benefits, paid for, by the people that want Trump to build the wall and secure the border.

Anarco-Tyranny and the destruction of the Rule Of Law will bring this country to conflict and bloodshed.

Open borders, paid for, through the fuckin nose, by the taxpayers who DON'T want open borders.

That should work out fine.

chuck said...

Pelosi, Schummer, Romney, Flake, McCain, McConnell, the uni-party wants open borders because they are tools of multi-national corporations that are in NO WAY AMERICAN COMPANIES.

Their loyalty is to shareholders and highly paid executives who could care less if you can make you car payment, or, your house payment. They are supported by the Federal Government-Deep State, the 4th Estate, Hollywood, Academe, all, who lie their fuckin asses off about "caring about the middle class".

This is Why the Fed raised rates. The establishment listed above, the elites that run our lives, WANT A RECESSION TO DEFEAT TRUMP IN 2020.

They come right out and say it out loud. Bill Maher has said many times that a recession is preferable to Trump in office.

Think about that. Your elected officials, your heroes in Hollywood and unelected highly stationed bureaucrats are working to create a recession even as I type, in order to maintain power at any cost.

Fuck you car payment, your house payment, your kid's education, clothing and you standard of living.

OPEN BORDERS!!!!! Fuck your neighbors, your friends, your relatives fuck everybody Progressives want their power back!!!

Chuck is right.

While President Trump is not a conventional leader and he might have stepped on some toes the entire wall business is not about him or any of the political parties. Republicans had the majority in Congress for two years yet they refused to do anything about the wall and it wasn't because they hated Trump. The incessant Media focus on Trump is only a distraction. The truth is much more disturbing. The invasion of our territory, like similar invasions in Europe, is part of a long term plan designed and encouraged by the globalist ruling class. It is about population replacement and the gradual destruction of the middle class under the banner of the "social justice" movement. The invasion is only the initial phase of the "fundamental transformation" and is designed to sow chaos and confusion but the final step will be a radical restructuring of our society along completely different lines. People should stop deluding themselves that elections matter, there is no conventional way to stop the entire process. The act of governing is not about consensus anymore, it is about deception. There will be no wall regardless of who's in power.

I don’t care if it’s a wall, fence or just a line on the ground enforced by military, just keep the Illegals OUT. We give more aid than any other country in the world, and have enough poor citizens that want and need a better life. Why should they be passed over to take care of foreigners? It’s shameful for the Dims to ruin our country by filling it with poor, unwashed foreigners just to build up their voting bloc.

10:34 stop being stupid, you are wrong. For example a medical officer in 2017 was paid 286K while working for the Dept of Veterans. Another was paid 290K in same area while another one in Palo Alto was paid 350K. They are federal employees so you statement is wrong simply because you don't know what you're talking about. The limit you quote deals mainly with the GS sector of federal employees.

Here all you assholes too lazy to look the correct shit up is a link to prove federal employees do make over 250K a year in some areas. But as most times when a link is posted you haters all cry it's fake so fuck you it does no good to try and prove anything in here. What it boils down to if anyone else besides chuck would have said it what was said would have been accepted.

Many of those federal employees in the KC metro are seasonal. Yes, the fed govt employs SEASONAL workers. If you think really hard, I’m sure you can figure out which agency employs seasonal workers. The agency is not popular mid-April, but essential for citizen wanting a tax refund. Seasonals work only 4-5 months a year, and make less than $12,000 during that time. So for those of you bitching about how fed employees earn big wages, just shut up. You have no idea what you are talking about.

^^Well you forget dummy, that chuck is a miserable, worthless fucking racist, and everything he says is boldface lie or something he made up in his empty head. So there's that. Also, pro tip: Don't post links, nobody reads them.

12:28: Per your cite, some medical directors at VA centers make over $250K, but that's about it. Is Chuck's fiend's brother a medical director of a VA? Or is the fiend's brother a figment of someone's imagination? Inquiring minds want to know.

And 12:47 is right. The feds employ many seasonal workers. I have personal experience in that regard in that I worked briefly for the 2010 census. The pay was $13 per hour, no benefits, no place to park, an office that had been thrown together with no regard for employees, and very loud employees talking over those of us who were trying to get our work done. I decided that my time was worth more even if I did nothing.

Regular workers, like those at Sprint, Dst Systems, Marion Merrill Dow, House of LLoyd, Lee Jeans have all had to face layoffs over the years and job LOSS, not just keeping a job, but missing a few paychecks. These Govt workers should have money set back to live on. In the end they have the most stable jobs- the govt will never go away. Others with MBA's and other college degrees have faced losing jobs at companies they worked at for years, often with no severance. Stop complaining, this is the way the world is.

Anonymous said...

^^^^^^^you just made what 12:48 said fact. Nobody wants to read the truth they like you want to only believe the voices in their heads. Sure the federal government pays low wages for seasonal work same as everyone else does. And yes there are those who make a lot of money working for the Feds. Chuck didn't say what the person did or where they worked they could have been a contract employee who can make a lot of money and do little to get it. You see contract employees don't fall under the same guidelines as say GS rated federal employees do for salary caps. It's fact that some people working for the feds make more money a year than VP Pence does. But you haters will only believe what you want to believe but I have heard there are drugs to treat such conditions.

1:05: Not a hater here. I just want the facts. A person doing work for the government on a contract would not be an employee--he or she would be a contractor. And yes, Chuck didn't say what the fiend's brother did, where they worked, or whether they were a contractor or an employee, nor has Chuck taken the opportunity to enlighten us about the fiend's brother.

Why would you suppose that is?

It saddened me to read some finger pointing negative posts.. But because we are still allowed freedom of speech in it's diluted form, some of you trash this blog but enjoy the freedom to confess to TKC, your innermost feelings. BUT SHAME on you particularly 8:15. This mentality is very disturbing. The bottom line is ILLEGALS not COLOR. So of course you haters that lack formal education, get miffed because someone who needs to work hard takes your ditch digging job. That is contributing to the spreading hate of those bottom feeding ignoramuses who find blame instead of getting a better education and have Jerry Springer mentality. I don't give a crap what color Tony may or not be. He's a passionate intelligent fellow, who probably laughed at your stupid post. So I wonder where you could go spew next, if he decided to act like you and had blocked your stupid post. But on a lighter note, am glad you can almost read and write.

I know people on here like to make generalizations, but not all federal workers are Democrats. There are Republicans.

Anonymous said...

1:49 - I mean, I get it that some of those pay rates seem excessive but many of them are STEM related fields that pay dramatically higher in the private sector. Is the government just supposed to forego filling those positions?

This is just the Republican way....look at what others are getting and bitch about it. "That fucking guy who works for the government makes that? That's bullshit, I only make $x, why should my taxes go to someone who makes so much money?" Or, on the other end of the spectrum "That fucking lazy no good broad with eight kids is living high on the hog in public housing and I'm paying for it". You know the old saying, comparison takes the joy out of life and I'll be damned if fucking Republicans don't live by the comparison mantra.
