Your Thursday article concerning Social Security workers complaining about pay raises ("Facing the fiscal cliff," Dec. 6) shows how these employees feel entitled because they are federal employees. They fail to realize the private sector is also encountering pay freezes, increases in health insurance and layoffs. Private sector employees do not enjoy the lucrative benefits provided to federal employees.

What they do is get a second job to send their kids to college.

So stop the whining and get another job if you want more money. Stop depending on the taxpayers to support your lifestyle.
