This month, President Joe Biden called on federal agencies to “aggressively execute” plans to get employees back to their desks after over three years of working remotely. It’s not the fact that taxpayers are getting ripped off by the hardly-working federal employees that worries the White House.
Now, Biden and the DC Mayor Bowser worry that the local economy in Washington DC will go bankrupt if the workers don’t start buying things in swampland.
Meanwhile, in some deep blue cities, federal workers aren’t safe to go back to work. And, no, we aren’t talking about COVID. On the same day as Biden’s memo, hundreds of federal employees in San Francisco were urged not to come to work due to crime and safety concerns.
The 18-story Nancy Pelosi Federal Building sits next to the Tenderloin district, a den of drug-addled vagrants and violent criminals. “In light of the disgusting and unsafe conditions” in the area “we recommend employees … maximize the use of telework for the foreseeable future,” says the Biden administration.
Expect the same work stoppages in Portland, Seattle, Chicago and New York.
