All I can say is "sigh!!".
Some noteworthy points:
The blue line works 5 days/week except for maybe a handful of holidays
The red line gets every holiday you can think of off
The blue line goes up and down with the business cycle
The red line only goes up
the blue line is subject to dismissal for performance
The red line can't be fired
The blue line has a self managed 401k retirement plan
The red line has a pension for life + 401k
and so on and so on ...
Oh, lest I forget it takes 100% of your salary from Jan1 to April 23 to pay for the red line. (source The Tax Foundation)
