I just saw on the TV that the FDA is broken had can’t do produce inspections properly. The FDA claims it needs $275,000,000 to hire 490 new people for its staff, so it can inspect our food and keep it safe.
That’s almost 600 grand per person. Why would it cost $600,000 to hire a food inspector? Let’s try this:
$60,000 per year salary, two weeks vacation, major medical and dental.
Now you can get 500 people for about 4 million, instead of 275 million.
Why are the inmates running the asylum anyway?
