United States: 800,000 Civil Servants Unemployed Means 212,000 Private Sector Jobs Created

About a month ago, the United States experienced the "Shutdown" for 15 days. Several jurisdictions were closed and about 800,000 employees have been laid off because no agreement was reached on the budget. The Democrats and President Obama cried about the paralysis of the economy in order to end the "shutdown". In fact, the US economy has not been affected by the shutdown. More: the US economy even experienced an upturn. According to the data on the third quarter, U.S. GDP grew by 2.8% and more than 212,000 net jobs were created in the private sector! Long live the "shutdown"!
