Feds Better Off Compared to Private Sector Workers, Survey Finds

Despite the ongoing pay freeze and talks of other cuts to federal employees’ pay and benefits, the majority of Americans still believe government workers are better off than private sector workers, a new survey has found.

The poll, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, found that 67 percent of respondents believed private sector employees work harder than government employees. Sixty-seven percent of the 1,000 respondents also said federal workers have more job security than private sector workers.

Most respondents also believe that government workers earn more money than private sector employees, a slight decrease from the 58 percent who agreed with that statement in September.

The respondents were split on their feelings on government employee unions: 46 percent oppose them while 49 percent favor them.
