    why is it that eligible family members are being paid three times what qualified locals are given for the same job?

    or am i misreading?

    is this not government corruption?

    is this not nepotism?

    is this fair?

    I would not go as far as to "yell" at OP since at least they posted the opportunity, but wow, that is odd that non resident family get 3x-4x the locals salary. bummer.

    That is for eligible family members. This applies to members of family US citizen who is stationed at the embassy. An example is the spouse of a consular officer stationed here. This allows for family of state department employee to come and work and live with spouse during foreign assignment.

    Unless an eligable family member appiles for position, preference will be given to locals who qualify.

    on the draw with this one.

    First off, embassy staffers that are US citizens have to be paid at US rates, not the prevailing local wage.

    Secondly, to encourage and help keep families together (remember your wife or husband and children might be back in the states or elsewhere) they try and place qualified family members in those jobs. The purpose is to keep families together and happy....an admirable goal don't you think?

    Without those sorts of opportunities, there would be fewer people choosing to live and work for the US around the world.

    The thing is that the us government uses a GS1 to GS15 pay scale according to the position you start with just like the military, except that in the military your rank goes up which causes your pay to go up. In a GS US government pay scale, your GS level only goes up when you go into another higher GS level position which would mean more money.

    The pay scale is already set in stone just like the soldiers pay scale is set.
    I think that 1/3 third is already a good pay, specially when you dont even have to be a US citizen. By doing it that way they are able to hire non citizens since only citizens can hold GS positions within the government which would also require a very deep and sensitive background check.
