(UNEDITED)The US Census has been completed and all the employees of the Census Bureau dismissed with the ending of the project. Why can the Dept of Commerce find a way to keep these excellent employees on the payroll and help to reduce the problems of future employment. Most of the employees had excellent attendance records and also had a high-level of competency in managing their time at work in the call centers, as well as a high level of quality when on the calls to the citizens of this great country. The time that was spent in training them along with the experience that was gained certainly could be put to use to bolster the attitude of the American public toward the work that is done by federal employees in the public arena. Certainly, there are other projects coming that will need the abilities of these employees and, in addition, consider that the suitability certifications have already been done on them, which will reduce the cost of hiring newer employees to do the same jobs. Why can't the representatives and senators find a way to make use of these well-trained employees to lower the level of unemployment in this time of disparity that is so prevalent? It would be good for both parties to work out a jobs bill that
includes the expertise of these individuals rather than allow them to be scattered in the winds of this recession.
