I’d like to call special attention to 50,000 active, federal and Postal Service workers in Alabama. Alabama has the fourth-largest number of federal employees among nine states in the Southeast — behind Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. Alabama also has 56,000 federal retirees. The salaries and annuities of active and retired federal workers give the whole state’s economy a huge boost.
Federal employees play a key role in making our daily lives much safer and more pleasant.
As we go through the week, please consider how government employees make our lives better. When you see one of those employees, thank him or her.
President, Chapter 1511, National Active and Retired Federal Employees
