Federal workers: How much overtime do you work? | #Fedbuzz

Must be nice to be a federal worker — at least according to the stereotype of a “lazy bureaucrat.”

It sort of goes against another common Washington stereotype, the BlackBerry-leashed, type-A worker bees who stay late and then take work with them.

So which is it, federal workers? Do you step away from your work outside the 9-5, or do you find yourself staying as long as it takes to get the job done? Are budget cuts and staff reductions increasing your workload or affecting your work day? Tell us how much work you do outside regular business hours for this week’s Federal Buzz Question of the Week.

You can weigh in on our Federal Buzz partner site, GovLoop, in the form below, or on Twitter using the hashtag #FedBuzz.
