11. Good for them...

Nice to see federal contract workers get recognized.

I'm one in the health care profession (not a min wage earner) and federal contract workers are sometimes treated like second class citizens by the regular full time workers in the system.

Usually it's resentment because they feel we must make more per hour than they do. They ignore the fact that we don't get the benefits that they do....annual leave, better accumulation of sick leave, better health insurance, facility waaaayyy more lenient on them for calling in sick/showing up late for work (wanna save several million? Install a time clock that the hourly pay full time workers have to use....astounding how many show up late but still claim a full 8 or 12 hour work day). Found to do or say something horrible to a patient...get reassigned to another dept for a week or two til things blow over.

It's nice to see POTUS acknowledge a group of workers who make a difference in a sometimes very screwed up system.
