The number of federal workers earning $150,000 or more a year has soared tenfold in the past five years and doubled since President Obama took office, a USA TODAY analysis finds. The fast-growing pay of federal employees has captured the attention of fiscally conservative Republicans who won control of the U.S. House of Representatives in last week's elections. Already, some lawmakers are planning to use the lame-duck session that starts Monday to challenge the president's plan to give a 1.4% across-the-board pay raise to 2.1 million federal workers.

How can this be? Is this a way to stick it to us a little more and show the power of the oval office? When will we wake up?

Sounds like more Obama economics , give the federal workers more money out of the taxpayers pockets in the hope they alone can stimulate the economy

 

The most frightening data is that effective this year, there are more Federal/municipality workers then private workers. There are 61% Federal/State/local government workers and 39% private. So if you consider that government workers don't really add to the economy but just take from the economy plus 20% of the of the population that just take (welfare, etc) that leaves few private workers supporting the entire country. We have become servants to the governments. Government workers have better pensions, better pay and better benefits.

 

If this doesn't concern you then look at France where 81% of the workers are government workers.

If I made 150k I would take a year off to go ridin!

 

Glad I'm not alone.......interestingly enough, I would also take a year off and go ridin'!! I'd take my sons as well. We'd race every Amateur National MX race across the country - on new bikes! (If I made more than 150k or even 150k!!)

What do you ride?

      If only we had a crystal ball to peak at the next 5 years. As a shop owner, you might still be booked out 2-3 weeks, but with gas prices, inflation, the great resignation, interest rates, and new and used car costs, what do you need to pay attention to in the short term to continue to be profitable and relevant?  Chris Cotton, AutoFix Auto Shop Coaching, Chris Cotton Weekly Blitz Podcast Hunt Demarest, CPA, Paar Mellis and Associates, Business by the Numbers Podcast Joe Marconi, Executive Council Member, Elite Worldwide.

      Key Talking Points
      Your employees should be your greatest strength. Invest in THEM to secure their future and the future of your business. Connect the dots with their goals and the company’s goals. Don’t ignore the people in your shop. Don’t get complacent. Productivity, efficiency, and effective labor rate are the 3 most important numbers in your business Systems, operations, and procedures. SOPs will set you free! Important to train the whole team on “what right looks like” so that everyone is rowing the boat in the same direction. It’s not about the one, it’s about the all. TEAMWORK makes the dream work. The automobile service industry is undergoing a literal revolution. The boomers are increasingly aging out, the number of independent competitors is shrinking fast, being a future top-shop will require much more business sophistication in the future, and the third-party investor feeding frenzy has begun. Smart owners need a strong business strategy, steeped in their legacy and exit strategy, to lead through these changes rather than just playing catch-up. Baby boomers retiring- 80-85% aren't worth making a private equity investment Shop owners coming from outside the industry- thinking from a business perspective  Elevating the industry through training and coaching Profit vs cash- cash brings personal spending habits into play, preserving cash Will it slow down? It matters what you do during the good times that will help you survive the bad times. Don’t let car count carry you. Redefine who you are and honed in

      This topic has been discussed before, but I think it's more relative today than ever. 
      Smart auto shop owners understand they need to constantly recruit, but what about keeping the employees we have now? 
      Let's revisit this topic and discuss your retention strategies and other comments on keeping your valued employees.

      While there are many different business models among all the automotive independent repair shops, what types of services or repairs give your auto repair shop the best ROI? 
      Preventive Maintenance Services? General Repairs, steering, suspension, brakes, etc.  Diagnostic/Electrical, etc. Or other?

      As shop owners, we are constantly finding ways to motivate our employees, and often we think it's money. Money does factor into motivation, but don't employees want other things? 
      If we knew what motivated our employees, we stand a better chance of keeping them and improving morale and production.
      So, how do we find out? Do we ask them? Would they tell us?
