NPR put together these neat graphics and accompanying article showing what America does for work.
One personal point of interest is that the things that MOST Americans are doing aren’t the loudest and most spotlighted. Government jobs, for instance, aren’t generally given the same respect and limelight that financial activities jobs get. I am not attempting to make any deeper point here other than as a country, we may want to widen our public discourse perspective to be inclusive of the background of most of the working population. Democracy style.
