Declining Social Security Administration Workforce

I've commented on this blog a great many times about the mindless approach that the social security administration takes to staffing its various offices. In brief, by refusing to replace workers lost to attrition (quits and retirements) the agency is allowing itself to slowly disintegrate.

Attorney Charles Hall has managed to come up with statistics that document the shrinking nature of the SSA workforce. As he states, the social security administration has lost roughly seven percent of its workforce in the last two years. And this has occurred at a time when the pressures on the agency (more retirement claims, more social security disability claims) have escalated.
