Picture of the Day: State and Local Government Jobs

From the Wall Street Journal:  State and local governments are still cutting jobs but the pace of these cuts has slowed.  This will likely continue to be a drag on the national economic recovery for 2012 as state and local governments are dealing with continued revenue shortfalls, but with private sector job growth getting stronger and consumer spending increasing, there is some hope that 2012 will be the last year of big cuts for a while.

This is a good thing less govt. workers/slackers = more money for private sector heroes. Next step end all unnecessary govt. programs such as.... all of them.
