Important for the worker or important for society?
It's important for the worker because usually civil sector jobs are pretty stable; unlike those in the private sector, jobs such as teaching, desk jobs at ministries and the like all remain essential to the running of the country. The worker is thus relatively shielded from fluctuating economic issues that could potentially cause retrenchment.
The government needs workers in the civil sector, because, well, it's obvious you need people to run the country.
However, it has to be said that there are those who consider civil service jobs to be somewhat lacking in prestige (at least in my country).
I hope this helps.
Well, let me count the ways: Need our military to defend our citizens and national interests here and around the globe. Need the Coast Guard to guard our coastlines, interdict drugs, prevent piracy, assist after storms & floods, and rescue boaters, surfers, swimmers, fishermen, etc. Need the FDA to keep toxins out of our food, drink and pharmaceuticals. Need the FAA to keep air travel safe. Need the Dept of Agriculture to insure a safe and steady food supply, fight hunger and malnutrition, and preserve our farmland, rivers and soils. Need the Park Service to preserve and maintain our great national parks and landmarks. Need the Army Corps of Engineers to keep our infrastructure — dams, bridges, levees, locks, highways, utilities, etc. — safe and secure. Need the FHA to insure a properly functioning national highway grid. Need the CDC to prevent outbreaks of disease and pestilence. Need the energy department to maintain a national electrical grid, safe nuclear plants, and a steady flow of natural gas and petroleum products. Need the IRS and the CBO to figure out how to finance and pay to keep all these other agencies and groups running. And that's just a partial sampling. Yes, government jobs are important, because government is important. Without either, we would all be isolated families in makeshift lean-tos deep in the woods, trying to figure out how to live on seeds, berries and bird's eggs.

Do you feel that there should be privatization of government jobs in America whether it is at thelocal, state, and federal level? Many government jobs are repetitive, nonessential, and a waste of taxpayer's monies. It would be better for the American economy if at least 50% of civil service...

http://groups.google.com/group/soc.reti … eed0653362Oh what a surprise!!! The stimulus didn't create a single job, at least no one can show that it did or didn't! Now that's a great use of 860 billion dollars! Hell, even I could create a couple of jobs with that kind of money!
