President Trump just put the fear of God in federal employees who are more concerned about hanging out by the water cooler than doing their jobs.
The successful businessman and President of the United States forecasted these changes in his State of the Union address last week.
“Tonight, I call on Congress to empower every Cabinet Secretary with the authority to reward good workers and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people.”
Because let’s face it; people who don’t want to do their jobs need to make room for people who do.
The exact parameters are said to be included in the budget plan Trump is sending to Congress. This is a good thing for the American people and will set to start the trend of eliminating wasteful government spending.
President Trump is also utilizing the VA Accountability Act, which gives the Secretary of Veteran Affairs the authority to chastise and dismiss employees, as it has been very effective in the past year.
One of the most impacting factors in this proposal is the reduction of automatic pay increases and restructuring to use the funds for performance bonuses. In this way, we ensure that good, hard-working employees will still bring home a fair wage, with the potential for even more; alternatively, we will see our less than useful people packing up and going home.
Tighten up, folks. This plan is more than fair.
