There are now over 22 million government employees in America—as opposed to just over 12 million manufacturing jobs—a stark revelation of the globalist ruination of that country. The government employees exceed the populations of 48 of the 50 states, including Florida, New York, Ohio, and Michigan.
U.S. Bureau of Labor data shows that government jobs grew to 22,235,000 in October, while manufacturing jobs dropped to 12,258,000.
The statistics also show that the some 9,000 manufacturing jobs were lost in October—while 19,000 government jobs were added.
This means that there are now 9,977,000 more people working for the government than there are working in employment—a guaranteed recipe for economic stagnation and collapse, and more reminiscent of Third World economies.
Over the past year—from October 2015 to October 2016—manufacturing employment fell by 53,000, declining from 12,311,000 to 12,258,000.
During the same period, government employment climbed 208,000, rising from 22,027,000 to 22,235,000.
The BLS has kept statistics on employment by sector since 1939, and an analysis of their data shows that manufacturing employees always outnumbered government employees until August 1989, when the divide was listed as 17,989,000 government jobs as compared to 17,964,000 manufacturing jobs.
The rise in government employees is linked to the promotion of legally-enforced affirmative action programs, which obligate state departments and state contractors to employ ever larger numbers of non-contributing “minorities” (although whites are the true global minority).
The full extent of the government workforce can be seen when it is considered that the 22,235,000 number exceeds the populations of 48 of the 50 states, including Florida, New York, Ohio, and Michigan.
According to the BLS figures, the government workers are broken down into 14,297,000 local government employees, 5,123,000 state government employees, and 2,815,000 federal government employees.
In addition, the “free trade” mania and agreements such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have effectively destroyed the manufacturing industry, with the U.S. not having seen a trade surplus since 1975.
In addition, trillions of dollars have been lost through trade deficits caused by “free trade,” which has in turn served to further deplete the economy.
It is a simple fact of that the only successful economies are those which produce goods, which manufacture. China is perhaps the best modern example of this obvious fact, while in the past Germany, and before that, Britain, served as the premier examples alongside the United States.
Now however, decades of fake “service industry” Reaganomics and Thatcherite economics—all based on the equally bogus economic theories of Milton Friedman—have taken their toll.
While Americans and Europeans have been stupid enough to believe that they could keep viable economies going by giving each other backrubs and providing other “services,” China adopted the sound principle of economic growth through manufacturing.
The end result is what is seen today in America and Europe: desolate factories, growing unemployment, and a slow slide into welfare dependency—and even that is bound to end at some stage when the pyramid-scheme of money-manufacturing comes to an end.
