22m Gov. vs 12m Manufacturing Jobs

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.

  1. You don’t have to be an expert at finance to work out the enormity of what this means. Add to that, and this is from personal experience when I was in work, the massive change from full time employees to part-time employees resulted in a smaller contribution to Tax and NI Contributions being paid into the Treasury. Yes part time work helped many people, but as in everything, there was a loser. There is NO FREE HEALTH OR EDUCATION – and borrowing money to pay for them or being unable to live within the budgets that are affordable to the taxpayers is why there are public debts in amounts that the next 3 generations will be paying for.

  2. Looks like the United Soviet States of America is on the cards & not too far off unless Trump wins the presidential race.

  3. Great article and correct in every way.
    By the way, as an American I feel like I’m turning into a frenchman with all this egalitarian crap in the US .

  4. What this shows is that government can afford the cost of affirmative action but private industry cannot. It’s perfectly legal to use aptitude tests to screen non-American hires (including H-1Bs) without worrying about “disparate impact”. If you can’t discriminate against *some* Americans, you have to discriminate against *all* Americans!

    This means that if Trump puts e.g. a 50% tariff on Chinese manufactures, unemployed Americans will be paying 50% more for Chinese-made goods, because he didn’t address the root cause.

  5. Having a government job is just another way of making you dependent on the government and therefore, far less likely to vote against it or for reducing it. The ever-increasing mass of government jobs is just another way of expanding the welfare plantation, albeit at a much higher monetary payout, but that only makes nearly impossible to break away from the government teat. Keep in mind, this article does not take into account people like public school teachers, who are all paid by federal funds, which also makes them government employees to a very real extent, not to mention state and local government employees, as well. “Government” in general is easily the largest employer in the U.S. far beyond places like Apple, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Oracle, Cisco and all other industries combined.

    It’s also important to remember, as well, that when the worldwide economy takes a dive, it’s the producer countries, NOT the consumer countries, that fair the best. When your entire economy is based on people buying things or consumerism, what happens when those people can’t afford to buy all that worthless stuff they don’t need anymore? There’s nothing left to insulate the economy from crashing. Everything grinds to a virtual halt. So, NAFTA wasn’t just about shifting millions of jobs overseas, but seriously destabilizing the U.S. economy.

  6. The Left/Liberal types always ‘pad’ themselves out with people when they come to power. It makes them feel that much more removed from the front line and less likely to get their hands dirty.
