This is so very sad:
Washington, D.C., is the best metropolitan area in the U.S. for finding a job, with only one unemployed person per job listing. Unemployment in the nation’s capital sits at 5.9%, thanks to its stabilized job market and bounty of government, education and health care related jobs.
I’m not sure I would use the term “bounty” to refer to jobs which cost more per unit work (and often generate no wealth whatsoever). And yes, I understand the three listed are “government, education and health care.” However, far too many of the education and health care jobs were created as a result of government regulations, mandates, etc.
It is past time to shrink Leviathan.
