Since 2014 The US Has Added 547,000 Waiters And Bartenders And Lost 32,000 Manufacturing Workers

As another month passes, the great schism inside the American labor force get wider. We are referring to the unprecedented divergence between the total number of high-paying manufacturing jobs, and minimum-wage food service and drinking places jobs, also known as waiters and bartenders. In September, according to the BLS, while the number of people employed by "food services and drinking places" rose by another 30,000, the US workforce lost another 13,000 manufacturing workers.

The chart below puts this in context: since 2014, the US had added 547,000 waiters and bartenders, and has lost 32,000 manufacturing workers.

It's unsustainable. How many end up being seasonal and then collect unemployment benefits when laid off?

Our economy was gutted out by the globalists and their free trade agenda. Ross Perot has been vindicated.

You make a good point. If we had voted for Perot we would have never had Slick Willie Clinton in the White House. Of course, Perot wasn't supposed to win. Clinton won because Perot divided the Republican votes against Poppy Bush.
