Stop Government travel junkets under the guise of training.

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Every year, thousands of dollars are wasted on travel for airfare, per diem, hotels, taxi fare, etc. for meetings, or training, consultation etc. The majority of the junkets are to resort areas. In this recession, we can not afford to send upper management officials to vacations under the guise of "training". Send the book or DVD. Do a free teleconference on Skype. If you need a vacation, use your own funds and leave, not the Government travel funds.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
