More shocking was the assertion that the inventory of Government Services Administration (GSA) leases shows that there is a 10% occupancy rate.
The podcast states that the GSA has an inventory of 8,000 buildings. With a 10% rate, that means that they only need 800?
Any place I ever worked that occupancy rate was between 80 and 120%.
With teleworking, even less space is needed.
The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. And this is an example of it.
