22 Million Americans Work for Government!


22,500,000 of our fellow countrymen work for the government, ie. the taxpayers. That’s more than work in construction, farming, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining and utilities combined! And, it’s 3 times as many government employees as there were 50 years ago.

How can a system sustain itself that keeps expanding the public sector work force?  Don’t think too hard, it’s a rhetorical question – IT CAN’T! But here’s an even scarier thought… What if these folks were allowed to form unions and collectively bargain, ie. hold the rest of us over a barrel? Thank goodness we aren’t stupid enough to allow that. Oh, wait…
