A need for a federal mandated teleworker policy is needed. The savings using tele-working has been substantiated across the board. With todays technology, working from home is a no brainier and the cost and employee moral savings alone is extensive. Consolidated federal work space should be the norm and workers should be encouraged to work from home on a normal schedule.
The morale of Federal Employees is low. We work hard to serve the Public, yet we feel unappreciated. We do not receive praise for good work, we work overtime because the budget cuts don't allow for the hiring of more of us; our pay has been frozen despite inflation and rising health care costs....A happy employee is a more productive employee. We need more pay! We meed to feel appreciated!
