    Those who are performing a service for the government are working on something related to the business of this country and are being paid by the taxpayers. You can't call them public servants in the since that they work for a government agency but you can't call them private sector either for they are being paid by the taxpayers. Because the federal government has been allowed to become this behemoth monstrosity, outsourcing to private contractors has exploded. Taxpayers funnel hundreds of billions of dollars a year into the chosen companies' pockets, about $80billion of which goes to tech companies. This is cronyism and very unfair to other companies in the private sector who make it or break it on their own. We've reached a stage of outsourcing of just about everything and it's damaging in multiple levels. Another level of damage is it is ripping off the taxpayers. Obamacare is a stellar example of this ,.... a global tech conglomerate CGI, which was responsible for the bulk of the work for the Obamacare website was paid very well, for what?

    The left side of the aisle looks to government to be all things to all people. They created a program for just about everything and then some. With the launch of every new program, they farm out the work to corporations. If the Federal government would have stuck to what it was Constitutionally bound to, all work could be done in house much cheaper to the Taxpayer. There would be no blurring between what is public and what is the private sector.

    No, they are being paid by the private corporation that employs them, not the govt and not taxpayers. They are not public servants. They do not work for you

    What part don't you get? The corporation is getting the money from the taxpayers to pay for the jobs it creates to fulfill the request of the government. I did not call them public servants but because they are getting paid through taxpayer dollars they are neither private sector employees either. And if they are doing something for the government you are damn wrong because government works for the taxpayer. So if you are a taxpayer they are working for you. End of story. End of the nonsense.

    If I was the owner of the candy store and I was able to pass a law saying that everybody had to buy my candy, I wouldn't give a **** whether my customers liked it or not.

    She makes all customer service representatives look like bumbling idiots. With her removed from that position she is no longer able to assist in ruining the reputations of hard working individuals.

    They are not public service nor are they being paid with taxpayers' dollars. And they don't work for the govt and they don't work for you.

    If you think this woman works for you, then you keep sending her a salary.

    It's remarkable how conservatives don't support corporations right to hire and fire when it suits their political agenda. Who knew that so many right-wingers were secret supporters of unions?

    Every call center I've worked at has had a policy where it was against procedure to allow individuals to record calls. Either the person on the other line agrees to end the recording or I've been told to disconnect. Now I can't stop people from secretly recording a phone call but that's a different situation. I don't know if all centers have such a policy but I know all of the ones I've been a manager at have had such policies.

    Furthermore, because of the nature of information given someone can accidentally record private health information depending on the quality of their recorder. In order to protect customer privacy we disallow all recordings. This is not difficult to understand when you're not a blind partisan. When you have sensitive information to protect you don't allow recordings in order to protect client and customer info.

    Furthermore the legality of such recordings is a nightmare and common sense is to avoid such a headache by disallowing all calls from being recorded by someone calling into a call center.
