US Factory vs Gov't workers

Not that this is a new phenomenon by any stretch...  but the difference is getting pretty close to 10,000,000 employees.

< ---  Government worker.

Yeah, it's a problem, but it's maybe a little more overstated than it needs to be.

For instance, a lot of jobs come under the heading "government worker" that have almost nothing to do with taxes, or they're a legitimate job that isn't just pushing paper like a zombie.

My job is one like that.  My "area" is actually a money maker, and without coercion.  We take in money that is voluntarily given in exchange for a service that is necessary and benefits pretty much everyone.

The guys that make sure the traffic lights are all letting traffic through - government workers.  Same thing with emergency services, school employees (preschool through high school and even some colleges), and building inspectors.

So yes, it's something to think about, but it's probably not as bad as it sounds.
