Laura Ingraham questions effectiveness of remote work for federal employees

For example, the vacant offices of the Departments of Homeland Security, Health and Human Services and Transportation are “a complete travesty.” That is “especially [the case] amidst an inflationary spiral, a supply chain crisis and a new Covid variant….,” she continued. “…[I]n the twisted liberal mind, in-person work is expected for…store clerks, baristas…[,]janitors, [and] airport personnel but the average federal worker apparently believes staying home is their right.”

Ingraham called federal workers President Biden’s “electoral bread and butter,” citing a Biden administration plan to make telework permanent for federal employees. 

According to the United States Office of Personnel Management’s latest guidance, federal workers who have to commute at least twice a pay period should still be paid relative to the location of their in-person office.

“No one believes that managers are as effective at monitoring the activities of employees who are not on-site,” Ingraham said. “And even if we take it as true that federal employees are just as efficient at home as they are at work, then why are we paying them [Washington,] D.C.-area wages?”
