Federal employees earn on average about 2% more than their private-sector counterpart. I don't care what you personally make, but I know people from janitors, painters, engineers, etc working at TVA and they all make more than they could in the private sector. There is a reason a job at TVA is so coveted. I don't know a single person working at any TVA facility who could get a better paying job in the private sector. There's nothing wrong with having a good paying job, but you should actually produce at the level you're getting paid, which is not the case at TVA. I don't have anything against TVA employees, but everyone else out in the world is having to take a pay cut right now. My pay cut plus the increased taxes I'm already having to pay do not leave much room for me to pay more taxes for overpaid TVA employees.

If this is the case then please explain United States military pay vs. Blackwater Operators pay. This is just one example of private sectors making more money.
Yes, as you said one example. You can find the exception to anything.
Again, here are the facts straight from the Congressional Budget Office. A little research on the current economic system is all it takes. Unless you have a professional or doctoral degree, the average federal worker makes more.The real inequality lies with workers who only have high school degrees. Federal workers with only high school degrees make almost the same amount as their private sector counterparts with a bachelor's degree.
I understand what you are saying but I am referring to power corps only. I'm not talking the President down to a janitor. Private power corporations employees make more than TVA because they make a profit off high consumer costs.
All of those people work at TVA and make up their budget. You can't exclude them, a private corporation can't say the wages of their secretaries and janitors don't count. My beef is with the inefficiency of TVA as a whole. I am sure there are some people who actually do some work there and are worth the pay, but the federal government shouldn't be overpaying the rest of the employees just because they can.
I'm going to go ahead and lock this. It's already starting to get a bit political, and I'm not sure how much longer we can keep this thing running before it goes off the rails.
Applaud yourselves, though, for keeping a slightly political thread going for four pages without it getting too contentious.
