I really hope you are joking Zach. I work for the government. I make water safe for use of the people. I know not an important job. With my skill set I can get payed more in the private sector. What you say than why do you work for the gov? Like you said it is a choice. I like the job security in what I do. It is hard to outsource water treatment to India since the water is here.
