    Default AmE vs BrE

    Hello! Dear teachers,

    What is the term used for those who work in the Government in the USA, which is equivalent as 'Civil Servant' in the UK?

    p.s. I am wondering where Ronbee has gone.

    I have spoken to MNY and he has assured me that he will be back to this forum soon. He's just very, very busy at the moment (aren't we all).
