During the last election, Democrats led by Joe Biden promised everyone a 42,000 check. They continued to promise $2,000 even after everyone got a $600 check. But once the election and the runoffs were completed, they knocked the amount down to $1,400. That is the amount the average blue-collar worker makes from the $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus package but it gets much better if you work for the federal government.
You still get your $1,400 check, but on top of that, you can make another $21,000 for sitting at home watching TV for 15 weeks if you were affected by COVID-19.
That means if you have a child and they cannot go to school, you hit the lottery, but Joe Schmo down the street is on his own.
Ironically, he ends up paying for the $21,000 given to federal employees. Is it just me or does this seem exceedingly unfair?
This last election was all about change but you have to realize that a lot of times change can be very bad.
Take Valley Forge for instance. The soldiers were suffering great hardships for six months, from December 19, 1777, to June 19, 1778. The bitter cold and lack of food and clothing, especially shoes or boots created a living hell for those brave men.
One day, Gen George Washington addressed the troops and told them they had good news and bad news. The good news is that everyone will get a change of underwear. When asked what the bad news was, Washington said, “You change with you….you change with you…..you change with you……”
The U.S. House version of the “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021” – a $1.9 trillion emergency aid package to help America recover from the coronavirus pandemic has an extra perk for federal workers: Enhanced paid time off if your child is enrolled in a school that isn’t back to full-time, in-classroom instruction.
Critics call it a personal bailout for bureaucrats. It is funded through a new $570 million family leave account exclusively for federal workers.
While millions of parents struggle to work from home with kids who are enrolled in shuttered or partially shuttered schools, and millions more left the workforce or lost jobs to care for their at-home children, evidently parents in the federal bureaucracy need their own, personal Covid-19 bailout.
Under the bill as currently drafted, full-time federal employees can take up to 600 hours in paid leave until September 30, up to $35 an hour and $1,400 a week. That’s 15 weeks for a 40-hour employee. Part-time and “seasonal” employees are eligible, too, with equivalent hours established by their agency.
