An anonymous quote from an employee at the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service
"Let me give you the honest truth: A lot of FMCS employees don't do a hell of a lot, including myself. Personally, the reason that I've stayed is that I just don't feel like working that hard, plus the location on K Street is great, plus we all have these oversized offices with windows, plus management doesn't seem to care if we stay out at lunch a long time. Can you blame me?"
This is actually the least of the problems in the agency -- fraud appears to be rampant. The Washington Examiner has a five part series.
