Non-essential", now it's "non-emergency"

Whenever there was a Nor'easter around here there was usually an announcement on the radio or TV that all "non-essential" government employees should stay home.
I've noticed two changes over the years
1) It needn't be a Nor'easter...Now, a dusting of 4-5 inches will ignite the warning
2) They no longer use the term "non-essential", now it's "non-emergency" personnel
Tight economic times have the public questioning who these "non-essential" government workers are why do the jobs exist
