    Believe me they know . I try to screen my employees from the kind of pressure you are getting, but they are too smart.  They know.

    As for myself, I will NEVER do less.  It isn't in me. . .

    I will work weekends twice in the next to month (in addition to my normal 10-12 hour days)reaching out to people who I know will benefit from my assistance.  I do not do it for the politicians. (You would be absolutely flabbergasted at some of the people who have complimented my employees and I-flabbergasted.)  

    Oh, yes, I am paybanded.  That means no raises since I won my current job, and all the other stuff, including the furlough, which by the way frightens my employees.  I make about  $24,000.00 less than someone in my grade and seniority in G.S.  I work hard, because at the end of the day I have helped  just the same people we strive so hard to advocate for on this site.  I will retire soon (43 years service), assuming the Hope and Change guy hasn't slaughtered my pension too much, and I will work hard until that day.  The people I serve demand it.

      There is something about a dialogue box that makes it hard for me to proof.  I am going to have to paste from word.
