“Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs” Rule and the Coast Guard During a Lapse in Appropriation” –USNI

US Naval Institute has a short article discussing how delay of pay can undermine our efforts to inspire and retain good people, written by an active duty USCG commander.

This comes at a time when neither the DHS FY2020 budget nor legislation to guarantee continued pay for the Coast Guard in case of a government shutdown has been passed.

  1. Thanks – but I don’t need an article to understand why missing a paycheck and worrying about your next meal can be tough for people. Have seen it with some of my friends over the years.

    The BIG question is why our elected officials don’t understand this simple fact?

    I am retired, fixed income, ok but not extravigant and in the USCG Aux, last shutdown I dug down and got a heaping Costco shopping cart for the folks here, many others in the community did the same, good on all that helps – but it is crap, should never be done to people, the CG is a very dedicated group and they got treated like crap because of a temper tantrum by the Cheeseburger in chief – no way at all to treat the troops –

    PS: keep up the good work on your site
