We're in the wrong line of work.

Say what you will about government work, it pays, and pays well. Or so says a study

The Bureau of Economic Analysis released data this month showing that
the average compensation for the 1.8 million federal civilian workers in
2005 was $106,579 -- exactly twice the average compensation paid in the U.S.
private sector: $53,289. If you consider wages without benefits, the average
federal civilian worker earned $71,114, 62 percent more than the average
private-sector worker, who made $43,917.

Eh well. Much ink spilled on this subject.
