You must have missed where it says it saves tax payers money.

HAHA $300 million in 15 years, we all know that's a lie. They will spend that on travel and hotel cost flying back and forth to D.C. Trust me they will find a way to spend that money, its not coming back to the tax payers.

Lets be honest it was a D1@k by the Trump Administration to kill the reports coming out of the USDA. I don't know why people are sugar coating it, just call it what it is. The administration is completely in their right to move the agency so the workers are stuck unless they move, but it seems no one really cares.

Anyone know why Kansas City? Seems Dallas or another city with a good International Airport would be a better selection considering all the travel that will take place between D.C. and the newly relocated office. Cost savings HAHAHAHAHA.

There is this new invention called the internet. You should look it up. It will probably save them a bunch of travel expenses if they are wise.

True, but employees in DC tend to be older and more toward the end of their careers and their high 3 goes into figuring their pension.
No, they do not want to move because they have no desire to either live in KC, or they have a spouse who works in DC so now what, or a combination of the two. Also, no one ever expected this and as I mentioedn, it is unprecedented.

And? So what if businesses do it all the time, but also, they do not do it all the time, it is actually rare for them to do it. They also do it for reasons, unlike this move which has zero logic to it.

Well, this is not the private sector, and this move is unprecedented and makes zero sense.

It will save zero money, will actually cost not only money, but loss of talent.

The HQ does not need to be located near agriculture, which even if so, KC would not even be in the top ten of ag cities to relocate to. They do not go out and deal directly with agriculture, they are not in wheat fields doing things, they have field offices and specific jobs that do that.

Yes, so have I, yet I even can find the absurdity and lack of logic in this move, but then again, I am not some blind "I hate government" person either.

Cry me a river. Military family members move all the time, as do other employees.

Military members go in knowing they will be relocating throughout their careers. This issue though, there is no expectation and it is unprecedented.

Most jobs do not move, it is actually rare, and when it does happen, there is an actual reason for it. In this case, there is zero reason for it.
