Your Federal Life — Mar. 13, 2024

More than a quarter of federal employees and managers say they’re burned out from work. That’s according to the results of a new survey from Gallup. But why are they burned out? And what can be done about it? For details, Federal News Network’s Drew Friedman and I turn to the executive director of the Federal Government Initiative at Gallup.

Plus, what’s the old saying? Never a lender nor debtor be? For most of us, no problem not being a lender. But for buying a house or a car — that entails taking on debt for the average working stiff. Not all debt is evil if you manage it correctly. Retired federal manager Abe Grungold of AG Financial Services joined me with some advice.
