Baggers hit 'Catch 22' WASHINGTON (UPI) - In what a congressman calls "the ultimateCatch22,"the Defense Department must put on the federal payroll at a possible cost of $18 million a year the youngsters who bag groceries for tips at military stores. ' Rep. Les Aspin, D-Wis., said the situation arose from a recent Civil Service Commission ruling, upheld by the Justice Department, that the baggers are federal employes. As a result, the youths cannot collect tips and must be paid salaries and fringe benefits tike otherfederalemployes. "It's the ultimate Catch 22," Aspin said, likening the situation to a fictional self- destructive military regulation on discharges. Hesaidretroactivepayments dating to May 1,1974, will cost $35 million to $53 million, according to Pentagon estimates, and most of the jobs probably will be eliminated because of the extra cost. "Instead of helping people, the Civil Service Commission will just be wiping out jobs," Aspin said. PUBLIC NOTICE!
