Held's comments

Given Held's comments: In February, Held said DOE/NNSA was looking to move toward more of a “public interest” model of management for the nuclear weapons laboratories and away from the high fees paid to Bechtel and University of California-run contractor teams at Los Alamos and Livermore... "My strong feeling is these institutions exist to serve the public interest. They do not exist for profit maximization," and given that Held concurred with Goldstein's selection, I would expect Goldstein, as President of LLNS, to be quite willing to accommodate the changes NNSA is trying to make.

B**t-f**king a**hole.

Those high contractor fees came right out of the budget for total employee compensation.

-1700 LLNL folks were fired to pay those fees.
-Compensation was reduced for others.
-The pension was lost for new employees.
-Salaries were frozen for years. -Training budgets were eliminated.

If that fee refund is anyone's, it belongs to LLNL employees, not some worthless NNSA fleabag whose worthless predecessors caused the problem.

Damnation to Bodman. A high-speed shoe for Held.

Gosh, angry much? Don't like change, huh? Doubt you're ready for rational discussion. I hope you don't own guns. Please get help.

You do realize that the fee goes into the US Treasury general fund and the NNSA employees just get their salary? Try to calm down.

Sorry. The profound stupidity of privatizing the labs will torment me to my death.

Very poignant. Except, I am the OP here, not you. One might tell by the tone and subject of the OP vs your pessimistic drivel.

It is very clear that LLNS has assigned some of their worthless 'managers' to the janitorial task of posting to this blog in an attempt to refute the logic of the rational LLNL employees who are disgusted with the treatment they are getting from the crooks of LANS.
