In an article posted on the Internet by Today's Government News, Contributor Howard Risher observes that "The states with the highest levels of active disengagement -- workers who are so unhappy at work that they 'undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish,'" as Gallup put it in a recent study -- "are Connecticut, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and my home state of Pennsylvania."

Mr. Risher then asks: “Are Civil-Service Rules the Enemy of Employee Engagement?” noting that “At every level of government, problem employees receive far more attention than those who make significant contributions.”
