Many IRS employees come to the IRS largely (solely?) because they have learned that such annual furlough (with unemployment) is available on a voluntary basis, almost always in the summer. Usually, they have already learned that such is not available on a voluntary basis in the private sector, summer or otherwise and certainly not for decades. Many choose to do their entire decades long sojourn at the agency.

Most cannot wait for the furlough (or shut-down, but that is a topic for another thread), and hope for it to last as long as possible. As previously stated, it is not necessary for one to remain seasonal to ride this train but most do because it is just about guaranteed that such will get their ticket. Not guaranteed for permanent employees but often available on a "voluntary" basis.

Cannot speak regarding other agencies, but would not be surprised to find similar practices elsewhere in government.

Do not try this in the private sector.

Again, agree to disagree.
