Who Is Hurting? Not Government Employees

This new interactive graphic from the Wall Street Journal traces the growth in job gains and losses in the United States from December 2007 through August 2010. The results show that all sectors of the U.S. economy have dramatically declined except for employees in education, health care, and government, with federal and state workers making up the single largest sector of the workforce in the categories tracked. All of this occurred despite the fact that n August, the economy lost 54,000 jobs as U.S. Census workers continued to leave the government payroll.
