house Bill H.R. 1531

Should Seasonal Federal Land Management Employees Have a Path to Permanent Jobs?

Argument in favor

Allowing temporary employees to become permanently employed by federal land management agencies will hopefully reduce training costs and lead to better retention. This leads to a more capable and cost-efficient workforce.

It's a simple step towards a promotion for people to deserve it.

It is a waste of $$$ to reinvent the wheel every season! Congress doesn't seem to mind never doing anything but federal agencies actually have real jobs to do. Fund them properly so they can fiction efficiently.

This is a cost efficient way to prevent extra spending on training and recruitment.

Argument opposed

This bill tries to keep it "all in the family" so to speak. There are no protections to ensure that former seasonal employees aren't favored over the many qualified people who have never worked for these agencies but still apply for permanent jobs.

The most qualified person should get the job. Period.

We have too many Federal employees we need to lose by attrition as we contract the size and reach of the govt anyhow. Of course if the Democrats lose the Presidency they will scurry to pad the payroll to the max as a means of dotting the taxpayer and the next administration.

The most qualified should get the job. If they've been a seasonal employee, then that's just one qualification.
