Advantages of Government Jobs: Although the younger generation has the least interest in government jobs still there is a large crowd who is aspiring for it. Although there are many disadvantages in government jobs there are many advantages as well which will make you think why you should work in a govt. job.
Aspiration for government jobs is mainly in the lower middle class and middle class.
However, aspiration for government jobs among the middle class and the lower middle class is not without any reason.
I have found out 10 possible reasons that make complete sense, why an actually certain section of society is interested in government jobs.
1. Pensionable Till Death
Next great thing about a government job is you get a pension until you die. This is a complete insurance of your life.
In fact, no private job gives you a pension and you have to either save money while you are working or beg in front of your children.
A government employee never has to fear about his future. He or she can retire peacefully without bothering future.
This is a main reason why people still love government jobs over private jobs.
2. Survive Without Any Skill
In a government job whether you work for one hour or 8 hours you will get the same salary. Hence people choose not to work and relax.
It really does not matter whether you have any skill or not. No one will question you and you will get your due salary. You can survive without any skill.
But in a private company if they find out that you are not doing your work properly then they will kick you out.
Moreover, in private jobs, there is also something called an assessment. They assess you every week or month whether you are capable enough to continue the work you have been given. If they find, you do not have the necessary skills then also you will be kicked out.
3. Free health care
We all know day by day health care for ordinary people is becoming out of their reach, even people from the upper-middle class is finding it difficult to afford health care for their family.
But if you work in a government job then the government will bear all your medical expenses, not just for you but an entire family.
Even complicated surgeries, which could cost you thousands of dollars, for a government employee would be done free of cost.
The government would bear all expenses for the surgery. However, if you work for a private company then you have to spend from your pocket.
This is why people love government jobs.
4. Get Maximum Vacations to Spend
As I said earlier in this article, workload in a government is very less. Hence, you get maximum number of holidays in a year.
In a private job, you hardly get any holiday. In a year you get maximum 4 to 5 holidays. But in a government job holidays you get in a year is greater than any private job.
This is another reason why people want to go for government jobs.
5. Make Extra Money
I am not trying to teach you something illegal here. However, this is a reality that in government jobs you have an opportunity to make money from under the table.
Although this is corruption, however, still people do it and make huge amount of surplus money.
I am not saying this is an advantage of a government job but unfortunately this is a reality and people love government jobs because of this reason.
