The working population of the US..... (Chicago)
I hate to bring this up at this time, but............
We are in trouble..
The population of this country is Protected content .
Protected content are retired.
That leaves Protected content to do the work.
There are 85 million in school.
Which leaves 55 million to do the work.
Of these, Protected content are employed by the federal government.
Leaving 20 million to do the work.
2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with killing Osama Bin-Laden.
Which leaves 17.2 million to do the work.
Take from that total the 15.8 million people who work for state and city Governments.
And that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.
At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.
Leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.
And there you are,
Sitting on your ass,
At your computer, reading jokes..
Nice. Real nice.
