If I were given the choice between a job as a cook for the private sector and the public sector, I would pick the public sector just because they're more generous. Odds are good I would get only part time perma jobs as cook in the private sector and it'd have no benefits.
Right. But they would just keep shifting you from temp position to temp position to maintain the appearance of keeping you employed.
