Earlier this year we told you that some DC employees of the Agriculture Department were expressing displeasure at news that they would have to relocate to where the agriculture is.
Politico has further explored that Trump administration initiative in an article about Agriculture Department morale:
It‘s not the least popular federal agency to work for, but the Agriculture Department took a huge morale hit last year — likely because of a controversial plan that pushed many of its research scientists out of Washington and to the Midwest https://t.co/HMjD7UaWBH

So it’s come to this?
This headline…you mean agricultural federal workers should actually work in areas with…agricultural? Wow! https://t.co/95aYIw9d1Q

Out with the actual farmers. Like they made them rub elbows with the plebes they purportedly serve. pic.twitter.com/SQg9a3PEOM

Controversial that they should move researchers closer to the subject of their research? This is the liberal brain. https://t.co/qw1pBt6Oyv

You mean working where they grow corn instead of buildings? https://t.co/ahyECwyZLt

How controversial! *Eye roll*
Oh, No! They might actually have to see a farmer instead of just reading about them in books. ?

Hmm I think it is a good move. Get them.out of the Beltway and closer to those who they are creating regulations for. More boots on the ground.

Relocating federal agencies around the country is a great idea on many levels https://t.co/BqDNEC5pRP

Agricultural scientists forced to work in agricultural area. The inhumanity! https://t.co/GLWZ5FI91I

Soooo, why are agricultural researchers not immersed in that which they are researching?
What's not to understand?

Awe…boo hoo. The Agriculture department moving to where the farming is done. Seems to make no sense, wait…

Is there still time for the House Dems to add this to the articles of impeachment?
Who would think it’s a good idea to put ag researchers where the agriculture is. This might be impeachable. https://t.co/HpdPaPy1mf
