— Even Amid Low Unemployment, Many Workers Struggle Finding A Job – Christian Weller (DIERSEN: What has frustrated your job searches? Since 1997, the following things have frustrated my job searches: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” Previous to that, they gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran.)
