Amid a flurry of media reports about dissatisfaction with federal employees, a group of younger, Web-savvy federal workers is planning to march Saturday in defense of their coworkers on the same day as a rally at the Lincoln Memorial organized by comedian Jon Stewart.
Organizers of the Government Doesn't Suck March said that they plan to attend Stewart's rally and that they were inspired in part by media reports, including a recent Washington Post poll that revealed negative perceptions of federal workers.
"We hear it day in and day out ... federal employees are lazy, and their positions are redundant," said march organizer Steve Ressler, founder of GovLoop, a social networking Web site for public servants.
"It's time to turn the tables and remind the world that government employees just happen to be people - people that don't suck," Ressler said in announcing the march.”
