Census Workers… Turnover Rate WAS About 100%

I just noticed this article about census workers from the mainland and the following caught my attention:

…We’re attempting to attract top talent” willing to complete their jobs, said Christy, who explained the bureau began offering market-relative wages after 1990, when, according to data compiled by Bloomberg News, national unemployment was about 5.6 percent, census workers were paid at a much lower level and the turnover rate for counters was about 100 percent. The bureau expects this year’s turnover at around 30 percent…

I can see why the turnover rate would be 100% if I wasn’t getting paid decently. I actually take it more like I’m getting paid to exercise!
