State Department Just Announced A Plan To Eliminate Hundreds From Staff By 2018



As soon as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson took office he announced a goal to reduce the nearly 25,000 full-time American employees at the department by 8 percent, which would make 1,982 people.

According to the New York Times, Tillerson was accused of crippling morale in the department, as he has already frozen hiring into an icicle, and has asked some senior employees to “Perform clerical duties that are normally relegated to lower-level staff”.

To make up for the difference, the State Department announced a buyout incentive Friday, that will grant a $25,000 buyout bonus to the first 641 employees that quit their jobs.

After taxation, the buyout is reduced to $16,000 but the Times reported that many top diplomats have already left and those among the top ranks has dropped from 39 to 21.



During an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News recently, Trump said, “You know, don’t forget, I’m a business person, and I tell my people, ‘When you don’t need to fill slots, don’t fill them.’ But we have some people that I’m not happy with there.”

And as far as the morale in the department is concerned, Tillerson said in an interview last month:

“I walk the halls, people smile. If it’s as bad as it seems to be described, I’m not seeing it, I’m not getting it.”

Lessening the slots! Very smart business move! If you think you are above doing tasks to help run this country efficiently; then, you don’t belong working for us! Our President and Mr. Tillerson are doing right by cutting back. We don’t need to pay someone thousands a year to make coffee all day....get up and get it yourself!

Tell us what you think about this new plan and make sure to SHARE this post to get the message out there! God Bless!
