    Didn’t the CEO just write an Op Ed piece declaring all is well?

    The Register’s biggest problem on its editorial stance is it exclusively kicks public employees as being overpaid and underworked. Meanwhile the examples of private sector employees living just as good if not better at the public trough is never mentioned.

    While the Register may believe no one is paying attention, it’s obvious that isn’t the case.
