An anonymous source has revealed the latest raping of the beleaguered American taxpayer.
The latest scam going on, and it is rampant especially within the Department of Homeland Security, as well as the Immigration & Customs Enforcement, is the hiring of retired employees. I know of this occurring in other departments like Department of Defense, but I can only attest to the experience of my informant at the DHS.
Employees retire under the former CSRS (Civil Service Retirement System). These employees get anywhere between 70-90% percent of their salary, plus availability pay. Their salaries are easily in the $120-150K range. At the ICE Academy location alone, former employees retire (five senior managers, GS-15 and up) and walk into the same job the next day, bringing in over $200K -- all under the pretext of a loss of experienced employees (utter nonsense).
They receive NO salary offset.
With a economy in the toilet and real unemployment among the US taxpayer more along the 13-15% range, this really needs exposure as governmental fraud.
