1/2 the time was with the underpaying feds.
I always called it a steady financial insult.
Working at the PO as a mech was entertainment. One guy quit and went to work at a local utility company doing oil changes on the larger trucks.
His starting wage was ours topped out after 10 years.
The retirement check is overwhelming.
After 25 years, I got 1279 a month basic check, Knock off survivor benies and health care takes me down to about 770.
When SS kicks in, it will be a nice pay hike and i won't have to raid the 401 plan so heavily.
