And We Thought FEMA Underperformed

Report: Rat Catchers 0-For-Decade

New Delhi's government has a rat catching department that hasn't caught a single rodent in more than a decade, a newspaper reported Monday.

There are 97 rat catchers on the municipal payroll, all working for the Rat Surveillance Department, a decades-old agency that last saw a lot of action back in 1994, when a plague outbreak killed 56 people in areas of northwest India near the capital, The Hindustan Times newspaper reported.

Each rat catcher earns about 3,500 rupees ($77) a month for catching, but there are no records of any rodents being caught in the past 10 years, the newspaper said.

Get paid to do nothing? Hey I know a recently resigned government employee that's actually qualified for that job.
