Employment Statistics

For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm overworked.

The population of this country is 237 million. 134 million are retired.

That leaves 103 million to do the work.

Of this there are 49 million employed by the federal government, leaving 52 million to do the work.

5.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 46.2 million to do the work.

Take from the total the 34,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 11.4 million to do the work.

At any given time there are 1,880,000 people in hospitals, leaving 9,520,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 9,519,998 people in prisons.

That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.

And you're sitting at your computer reading jokes.
