Yesterday, I wrote about the sad state of high-paying manufacturing employment where government employees now outnumber manufacturing employees by almost 100 million. With a ratio of 1.8 government workers to every manufacturing worker.
But where did all those manufacturing workers go? Apparently, some of the manufacturing jobs have gone to the leisure and hospitality industry so that lower-paying leisure and hospitality jobs now outnumber manufacturing jobs. In fact, there are 3.3 million more leisure and hospitality workers than manufacturing workers.
