P.S., it’s also interesting how many “government” jobs have LONG been “part time” or “seasonal” to avoid paying benefits like grade and promotions, retirement, and health insurance- goes back to the ’60’s when I started.
But, folks like Ramirez who constantly complain about government don’t note this. BTW, most firefighters on wildland fires are “less than full time”, and even the contract firefighters “take it in the shorts” by NOT being paid for “standby” time! Ah, but the contracting companies hiring them still charge the agencies as if they were!
