PTO touted rating as top for job satisfaction – perhaps here’s why – Uggghh!

01 Aug

Over the course of more than four years, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office knowingly wasted and misused more than $5 million in taxpayer dollars by paying salaries to paralegals who had so little work to do, they used the time to watch television, do laundry, surf the Internet, go on Facebook, shop online and exercise, an investigation by the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Commerce has revealed.

 

In a related story, the USPTO touts its rating as best place to work in the US Government.
