How Many EPA Employees are “Essential”?
When the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt was tasked with looking to eliminate 25% of the 15,000 employees at the agency, many on the left had heart attacks.
Well I just found an article by Reuters in 2013 that when our federal government was facing a shutdown in 2013 the EPA only considered less than 7% of their employees essential.
How are less than 7% of EPA employees essential and we have 15,000 of them? Do you realize that our government believes that approximately 1000 of the 15,000 EPA employees are really needed.
Are we still looking to only reduce the workforce by 25%, how about 75% for a start.
