Those government jobs existed before that tragedy ever happened on 911. The people who performed them provided valuable public service every day of their careers. The people have decided through their elected representatives that we want the people who serve the public interest to work for the public.Read what I said without so much bias. People employed by the government went into those buildings and saved thousands of lives. But, the government didn't create the job. The job was created by a tragedy (an invasion/attack). As a community, we decided that responding to that type of tragedy would be the responsibility of the government. We could also have said it would be the responsibility of a private company of some kind -- or, by volunteer citizens (which also happened by the way) -- or, by citizens who would be paid by the collective later. The are pro's and con's to all of the options.
BS stacked a mile high. Be specific for heavens sake. Quit attacking public servants behind a cloak of vagueness. Tell us what government jobs are welfare. The public needs creates jobs and the government represents the public. It is a perfect symbiosis.My use of "welfare" applied to made up jobs. "Sit here, do pretty much nothing, get paid." That's the only type of job the government "creates". Every other kind of "job" the government does is created by someone or something else (need, demand, capitalism, etc.). The government doesn't create the jobs.
