that private sector employees (with the exception of the top 2% of course) are largely being screwed by having to work more hours,
and turn that around to say "see, that's the problem with public employees, they're lazy!"
Apparently, private sector employees on average work a couple hours more per week than public sector employees. They either don't know, or have chosen not to share with us, how private sector work weeks of today compare with those of the past. I'm guessing it would not fit their narrative.
Considering that wages have been stagnant against inflation over the past several years, it doesn't sound like a great deal to me.
But if you think the guys who wrote the article sound like jerks, scroll on down and read some of the comments....
