Your tax dollars are not hard at work.
The government in general is plagued with unionized workers who whines like a baby whenever they're asked to do something that's not in their job description. It's a challenge to be a supervisor for those selfish bastards, because they're constantly taking legal action.
I hope all of those people read what the Hawaii State Department of Education Superintendent said about the people who volunteered during the Hurricane Lane situation.
“I want to thank all of our essential personnel who stood up shelters in our schools statewide, and went the extra mile to assist and care for our communities during this emergency," said Superintendent Dr. Christina M. Kishimoto. “During my visits to shelters yesterday, I saw Department staff giving their time to assist Red Cross volunteers, selfless support for members of our community with mental health needs, specific care for homeless individuals seeking food for themselves and their pets, and quick calls to action to help feed children and their families. I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to these individuals who never once said, ‘That’s not my job.’”
As a comparison, some government workers rejoiced after they received multiple days off with pay due to a powerful hurricane.
