SNL Mocks Government Workers

Saturday Night Live aired a great skit this weekend called “Public Employee of the Year” that is just one shot after another at the ridiculousness that goes down in the public worker sector. Not only does the skit include a DMV monologue, but also this witty line:

“It’s important to remember that people with government jobs are just like workers everywhere… except for the lifetime job security, guaranteed annual raises, early retirement on generous pensions, and full medicial coverage with no deductibles, office visit fees, or co-payments.”
