Knox County Employees Caught Not Working For US

Let's see how this worked today. This afternoon Knox County employees met with members of the Knox County Commission and the health insurance committee to force themselves into the discussion on the health insurance decision for 2008.

The problem that I have with the meeting today is that it was held at 4:00 p.m. These employees are supposed to be working for you and I until 4:30 p.m. So they got a little extra recess time and did not accomplish their job duties that you and I are paying them for.

I hope that the media present this afternoon took note of all the employees that attended and then checks their time sheets to see if they shortened their lunch break today in order to attend the meeting or took thirty minutes of comp time, vacation time aanything so that we didn't pay them to lobby so that more of our tax dollars are used for their increased health benefits.

Think of how productive our government could and would be if all the employees actually worked at their designated tasks for 8 working hours a day, five days a week.

It seems that the employees in Cathy Quist office are a majority of the ones trying to get a playground or hall pass more than any of the others. What is going on in the Circuit, General Civil Sessions and Juvenile Court Clerk's office. Not much work, it appears.

What is new about this? It goes on all the time in the city county building. Have you ever tried calling or visting anytime on Friday? I have. That why this does not surprise me.

The meeting was on Thursday not Friday. So I guess they got out earlier for the weekend.

The media should watch for employees that do not function their job duties.
