EPA Employee Who Says She’s Quitting Over Trump’s Budget Is Eligible for Retirement--Worker earned $250,000, with $64,000 bonus
An Environmental Protection Agency employee who says she is quitting on principle over President Donald Trump's budget is eligible for retirement.
Elizabeth Southerland, director of the Office of Science and Technology in EPA's Office of Water, was making $250,000 a year. In farewell remarks, Southerland said she was worried about government employees and environmental consultants losing their jobs.
Her protest against the budget came over two months after the budget, which is not likely to be adopted in full, was released.
