“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore”

“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” The USA, the bastion of global capitalism, entrepreneurship, with the goal of achieving the American dream is now home to people who would rather work for the government. According to Rasmussen Reports, a government job remains “the top employment choice in today’s economic environment.” While below the level of 37% in Jan, “29% of adults believe it is better to work for the government than to work for themselves or for a private co.” There is some hope though as 24% think it’s better to work for themselves in the current economy, up 7 pts from the Jan survey and “Americans believe, by a 9-1 margin, that the creation of a new job in the private sector is better for the economy than the creation of a new government job.” “Worker confidence” in the jobs market is the likely reason for the desire for government work as it fell in July to its lowest level in over a year.
