What looks like job growth isn't really

What’s driving American job growth? Wall St. Journal reports that in progressive states, it’s government, social assistance and healthcare. Only a Democrat blue state resident could think that is healthy.  Pay Wall, but it's easily confirmed by checking the Bureau of Labor statistics.

"Nonfarm payroll employment rose by 216,000 in December. Job growth averaged 225,000 per month in 2023, compared with the average monthly gain of 399,000 in 2022. In December, employment continued to trend up in government, health care, social assistance, and construction, while transportation and warehousing lost jobs."
