Who's Working?

Postby Big Pimpin » Tue Mar 13, 2007 12:10 pm

The population of this country is 300 million.
160 million are retired.
That leaves 140 million to do the work.
There are 85 million in school.
Which leaves 55 million to do the work.
Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government.
Leaving 15 million to do the work.
2.8 million are in the armed forces
Which leaves 12.2 million to do the work.
Take from that total the 10.8 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 arse,

at your computer, reading jokes.

Nice. Real nice.

Not more than half of the people in the country are retired. According to the 2000 census, 21% of the population was 55 or older, assuming that number has stayed the same (and even assuming that everyone 55 or older is retired) that's only about 63,000,000. Also, I think it's safe to say that a large part of the nearly 200,000 people in hospitals are retired, so they can't be subtracted twice. And wouldn't the 2.8 million in the armed forces be employed by the federal government? They shouldn't be subracted twice either. With the 85,000,000 that this says are in schools, we are supposed to buy into the assertion that over 80% of the population is either in school or retired.

No way that many people are retired. They're all greeters at Walmart.
