I don’t make any secret of the fact that I’m not good with numbers…words are my thing. So when even I can look at some numbers and see that something is terribly wrong, that is some serious trouble.
Take the October jobs report for the State of Washington. It tells us that 5,900 jobs were added. Sounds good, right? Or wrong, as the case may be.
A second look reveals that of the 5,900 jobs, 4,000 were in the public sector. To my number-challenged way of thinking, that burdens only 1,900 private sector employees with supporting 4,000 new government workers.
Isn’t it obvious that’s unsustainable?
