WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tune in now to AFGE's "Inside Government" radio show for in-depth analysis of a new Washington Post poll about federal employees! The show, which originally aired on Friday, Oct. 22, is now available on demand.
The Post's Federal Eye blogger Ed O'Keefe discussed the results of the poll, which found that three out of four people who have interacted with a federal employee report that the experience was positive.
AFGE District 7 National Vice President Dorothy James and District 8 National Vice President Jane Nygaard then responded to the poll and highlighted the valuable work of federal employees. James and Nygaard cited employees in the Bureau of Prisons, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Transportation Security Administration as examples of workers critical to the safety and security of the American people. James and Nygaard also addressed ways to further educate the public about federal workers and went on to discuss the negative impact downsizing could have on an already understaffed work force.
Also on the show, former NASA astronaut Dr. Bernard Harris provided an inside look at his time as a federal employee, which included missions on two space shuttle flights. Harris also discussed the need to educate young people in math and science.
