The government should be able to hire and fire whomever it wants. This also includes cuts. The government should be run in a way that is most efficient to the people it governs. If cuts are necessary then they should be done. As long as the cuts are done based on merit of the person being cut then I have no problem.
It is very unlikely that the government will cut jobs. The government cut taxes but most likely will not lay off any employees because of the unemployment rate. The unemployment rate is now about 7 per cent. It is unlikely that the government will cut jobs with a positive rate.
