It can be properly inferred on the basis of the statements above that the author believes which of the following?

I. Too much job security can have a negative influence on workers.

II. More government workers should be fired.

III. Most government workers are Civil Service employees.

(A) I only

(B) I and III only

(C) II only

(D) I, II, and III

(E) III only
