Allow individuals to share a full time position. The governemnt would save money on the healthcare it would no longer provide to the part-time people. They would also save money on TSP & Leave. The government would also be able to retain some of the folks who are close to retirement and with that, their knowledge. The employees would be more engaged in their job because they would have 2-3 days off to do things for their family (dr visits, school functions..etc) because most of these things can only be done during "working hours." Employees would also use less sick leave because they don't have to use it for those visits and that also would save the Government money when an employee retires.
