    Let's just give everyone a job in DC and benefits like Congress gets.

      There are several different regional centers which employ thousands of government workers.

      They don't all work in DC.

      That said, I'd take a job in DC or in one of the regional centers -- DC if it was a GS-9 or above, anywhere else, a GS-6 or above would be OK.

        I've heard this twice in the last couple of weeks on my local public radio station: That the state Department of Workforce Development has hired >80 new employees to staff the positions required to process unemployment insurance applications....

        ...and I never know whether to laugh or to cry
