  1. Hey Phil, There’s 350,000,000 Americans. A work force of less than 1% is pretty damn efficient to any non-teabagger. You’re part of the problem when all that you’re capable of is complaining.

    • yo Mark… the Labor Force is about 150 million.. learn the difference between the population and the labor force… and maybe do a little homework on the labor force participation rate.. and then comment..
