According to the latest figures I can find for the American work force shows there are about 145,000,000 people employed.

Many of us work in transportation, 4,440,000.

Seems like about 5,353,000 of us work construction.

And about 11,880,00 of us work manufacturing.

Another 7,783,000 work in the financial business.

And 17,845,000 of us work in the professional and business service industry.

Can you believe that 20,791,000 of us work in education and health services?

So, where do you think most of us work….Yeah, I bet you have already guessed it….21,732,000 work in government. Are you surprised?……Me neither..
