    Senate Staffers really are over-achievers. GT isn’t far off the mark. They’re sort of like interns in a law firm.

    Nobody pays me enough to work that much.

    Yah, I cut it off about 65 hours a week myself. But they take it easy on me since I’ll be 60 this year.

    There needs to be more experienced ‘real’ people in the work force. At the top. Someone has to tell these scallywags that you don’t have to burn the proverbial at both ends to survive or be seen to be ambitious.

    So, reducing the workload. Make sure they understand. My boss’s expectation was always more, more more…until I crumbled! And then they wanted more. I’m 64, so watch it. I have since gone

    Let them get over it. You have more to offer than being there every hour. After all, what’d they hire you for?

    That’s the thing about older workers- They know when enough is enough. They also know hard work and enthusiasm will only get you so far- after that you either have to be related or given it up to really get ahead.

    I don’t see the point of such over work. Looks to me that if they do so and don’t make it up they will be useless by the end of the week.

    The older and more experienced you get, the more you know how to utilize your work time properly and maximize your production.
    When I was young, I thought that working round the clock was what I was expected to do. As I matured and took on responsibilities of home and family, my priorities changed.
    By the time I retired ( sort of ) I knew how to accomplish more in four hours than these kids could get done in sixteen… .

    They work that late so that the public can’t find out in time what they have done to the Country.

    What’s all this talk about this “work” thingy? I got no work. I don’t need no steenkin’ work.
    I’m retired.
