OPTING OUT.

The Washington Post notes that many government bureaucrats are choosing to walk away.
With retirement accounts on the rebound, many veteran workers are finding little reason to remain in government, especially at a time when agency budgets are being slashed, workers are being furloughed and morale is tumbling.
In some cases, government workers are leaving because of unkind things Members of Congress are saying about their agencies, although Cabinet secretaries and undersecretaries retain the bureaucratic imperative to protect their fiefdoms.

Contrast that with public higher education, in which when the administrators and legislators are not in pissing contests with each other, they are imposing additional burdens on faculty and staff, and ask yourself how much longer the senior people will continue to put up with it.
