Telling Our Stories



#TheyWorkForUS

Hear federal employees speak, in their own words, about the wide-ranging work they do.

 

Their work is so ingrained in our daily lives, it often goes unnoticed. But without federal employees, our country would come to a screeching halt.

There’s no better way to learn about the diverse contributions of America’s workforce than from federal employees themselves. This website features federal employees speaking in their own words about their fascinating work—from making sure imported garlic is safe to eat to catching tax cheaters.

It’s all part of a national public service campaign by the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) to shine a spotlight on the federal employees who deliver vital services in every city, county and state in America. Our campaign also sets the record straight about federal employees by busting common myths about where they work and what they do.
