(COMMENT: I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years and I have been a federal retiree for almost 24 years. I should write a book about those who have used that against me the most. I would focus on those who have never sought a federal job a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against the aforesaid.)

— We Can’t Educate Our Way to Racial Economic Equity – Michael Collins
(COMMENT: I worked for GAO’s Chicago office group that audited federal financial industry regulators 1990-1997. In 1992, IIT started a master’s degree program in financial markets and trading. (SEE: https://www.upi.com/Archives/1992/08/04/IIt-offers-new-financial-markets-graduate-degree/1463712900800/ ) The courses in that program were directly related to the work that the group did. Sadly, I was the only member of the group that took those courses. I earned a master’s degree from IIT in financial markets and trading in 1997. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” so that they could give my Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office.)
