    $332 Million In Federal Worker Bonuses And Searchable Individual 2012 Payroll Records

    $332 Million In Federal Worker Bonuses And Searchable Individual 2012 Payroll Records | wusa9.com

    WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A new federal payroll database obtained by WUSA9 and the Asbury Park Press shows $105 billion in federal wages including $332 million in 2012 bonuses and identifies the government's biggest payouts going to workers who deal with natural disasters.

    The searchable database shows individual payroll records for fiscal year 2012, including some bonuses, for about three out of four government workers.
    The Asbury Park Press estimates the numbers include about 73% of government workers, but excludes Department of Defense, CIA, FBI, Congress, The White House and some security agencies.
    It's only evil to pay bonuses to CEOs of big oil companies, I guess.

    Shouldn't there be a PROFIT to base bonuses on? Government isn't supposed to be in the business to make a profit, not to mention ours runs in deep deficit as it is.

    What are these bonuses based on?

    My guess is bonuses are based on saving the government money but IDK.

    Technically the USPS is not part of the government, but a few different people who work for ours locally told me the reason certain decisions had been made that I found odd were because the local Postmaster got a big cut of any savings he could create. For instance, a branch office was closed and the not that old building was sold, and it was replaced with a franchised postal station in a rented spot in a shopping center about 250 yards away.
