Government service in tough times

-A A +A

Sag in productivity will drag subtly on economy

By Merilee Dannemann

In a certain office of New Mexico government, a friend tells me, three clerical assistants work with a group of professionals. One clerk is competent and hardworking.  
The other two are incompetent and unreliable. All the professionals try to snag the good employee for their projects.
She works much harder than her peers but is paid the same.  
Eventually she will get tired of this and will either stop working so hard or find another job.
Another professional in state government describes her frustrations with management. She has to travel around the state to do her job, but because of budget constraints she’s not allowed to stay overnight.
Overtime is not authorized. So she drives long distances during work hours, wasting taxpayer dollars and providing less service.
Yet another friend is opening a business that requires a special state certification, including mandatory training administered by the licensing agency.
