Uncle Sam is Hiring

Although the economy is in a funk, there is one employer who expects to hire big time in the coming years — Uncle Sam.

“Most experts agree that the government will need to replace at least a half million federal employees in the near future,” says a recent report by the Merit Systems Protection Board.

The board preceded that statement with an almost lyrical explanation of why so many hires will be needed: “The upcoming wave of expected retirements may be a tsunami (as some predict) or it may have the erosive effect of a constant crashing of smaller waves upon the beach.”
