“There were only 1.75 full-time private-sector workers in the United States last year…”
“…for each person receiving benefits from Social Security, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Social Security board of trustees.”
But don’t worry: if you include full-time government workers, that rises to 2.1. And then if you include all part-time workers (no matter how part-time they were), it’s 2.9.
We now return you to your regularly-scheduled panic over global warming.
