If You're A Federal Employee You Might Want To Dust Off That Resume
Your gig could be
in big trouble

(NATIONAL) -- If you're a federal employee you might want to dust off that resume and start looking for a new gig right now, for soon your services may no longer be needed.

"President Trump’s budget proposal this week would shake the federal government to its core if enacted, culling back numerous programs and expediting a historic contraction of the federal workforce," says a new piece in the Washington Post which adds, "This would be the first time the government has executed cuts of this magnitude — and all at once — since the drawdown following World War II."

Uh-oh. Sounds like somebody in Washington doesn't cotton to the federal work force, not one little bit. Perhaps these people think you (that would be ALL of you federal employees) are all simply useless and need to go?

Is "historic contraction" what little Stevie Bannon, chief whisperer into the ear of Donald Trump, means when he talks about "dismantling the administrative state?"

Does he really mean neuter, disembowel and destroy the capacity of the federal government to function by starving it of staff, expertise and historical memory?

The Post piece says the budget that Trump is set to release today will set the landscape for a new Washington; one that throws money and treasure at the military and homeland security as if there were no tomorrow while taking a razor-sharp hatchet to many other areas including environmental protection programs, the EPA itself, public broadcasting, housing, research and many other areas.

Gosh, what a surprise.

"Simply put, government would be smaller and less involved in regulating life in America, with private companies and states playing a much bigger role," says the Post report here which also notes that the cuts Trump plans to propose this week are also expected to "lead to layoffs among federal workers, changes that would be felt sharply in the Washington area."

"According to an economic analysis by Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, the reductions outlined so far by Trump’s advisers would reduce employment in the region by 1.8 percent and personal income by 3.5 percent, and lower home prices by 1.9 percent," says the Post story.

What is fascinating about this desire to chop-chop-chop the federal work force is this: that force is now already lower than it was in 1940.

The federal work force has been shrinking steadily every decade for the past 70 years. See the Washington Post chart at upper right.

All of which poses the question: what's really going on here?
