    I've worked in a Government office for 17.5 years. I love my work & am proud that I'm doing something for the State of Israel & not merely to line some corporate fatcat's pockets. I'm proud to work my butt off for my country. Come see what my take-home pay is! You'll stare in disbelief! The Govt. (biggest in the country's history!) can fund 30 ministers and 9 deputy ministers and spend Hashem-knows-how-much money on crap & it cannot afford to my colleagues & I a respectable wage??!! And yes it bugs me that there's no strike ballot in this country, but you know what? I'd vote to strike in a second!!
