In February of 2014, a DMV employee was documented by her supervisors for sleeping at work. According to four separate witnesses, the employee continued to sleep at her desk for a minimum of three hours a day, for nearly 4 years straight.

The most mind-boggling part of this story is that there is no dispute that this employee was sleeping on the job, every day, for nearly 4 years.

In addition to the four witnesses, her daily sleeping was also documented by her supervisors in written, periodic performance evaluations, which the employee signed off on without disputing any of the factual allegations contained within.

When the state auditor got involved midway through 2017, the employee’s supervisor defended her failure to perform her core duty by claiming that “because she woke up the employee three to four times each day, she believed the employee missed only 20 to 30 minutes of work time daily.”

The auditor rejected the obvious falsehood that an employee who needed to be woken up “three to four times each day” somehow missed only 20 to 30 minutes of work.

So what's your point? All government employees (on every level) are bad because this chick and her manager were?

I worked for my entire career in a County health department. I worked very hard, and I supervised many other people who worked very hard. In addition, there were many other co-workers in my department who would never have had the time to sleep on the job. There will always be examples of bad behavior. That doesn't mean that the whole of government employees are the same. Shame on the OP for making such an insinuation! Do you think such examples could not be found in private jobs?

To be honest you are even WORSE than those people. You "coddled" all those poor people that are ruining the country and making things tough on those hard working people who paid YOUR salary with their hard work.

In the private sector where money must be earned, the ramifications of an inefficient employee are somewhat immediate and if discovered by ownership, dealt with quickly. If you ran a biz would you pay someone to sleep on the job?
In the public sector there is no penalty, the people are taxed the same no matter the quality of service. There is no loss of business to show customer dissatisfaction, nor an increase in profits to indicate satisfaction. That you did a good job is simply unverifiable, you would have been paid regardless.

That employee should have figured out that frequent naps is the symptom of a health issue.
