As a 32 year federal employee, the last 26 years with the Social Security Administration, I disagree with the letter to the editor dated March 8, "Social Security employees deserve a pay cut or two." The vast majority of SSA employees are hard working and dedicated to their jobs. The employees in the office I work in, the Office of Finance, are true professionals. All of our accountants have a bachelor's degree, and many have an advanced degree. Our employees come to work every day dressed in proper business attire, ties for the men and professional attire for the women. These employees are career oriented and do have definite goals in their professional and personal lives.
