There’s a huge controversy surrounding the proposed Homeland Security department. Does it revolve around debating whether or not bundling up 170,000 federal employees with widely varying roles and many different kinds of responsibilities will actually make the country more safe? No, of course not. Instead it revolves around how much flexibility managers in the department will have with regard to being able to fire employees. The structure of the massive new department seems to be signed, sealed, and delivered whether it makes sense or not.
