A Vagabundagem Inata dos Funcionários Públicos
It must be painful to be a government worker. How else to explain that public-sector employees miss work due to illness or injury at far higher rates than private-sector workers? According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data released late last year, government employers reported 5.1 cases of injury or illnesses per 100 workers in 2015, compared with just 3 cases per 100 in the private sector. Because of those higher rates, sick or injured public-sector employees were about 50 percent more likely to miss work or be put on modified duty than private workers.
