Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The greatest increase in government employment comes at the state and local level; not the national level. The loss of manufacturing jobs to outsourcing, the decline of unions and the major corporations seeing their greatest growth internationally has contributed to the decline. The unemployment rate you quote is 'rubbish' as it doesnt truly reflect the state of employment in the US.
