Digging that hole deeper and jumping in it.
The International Labor Organization released its annual report on productivity of workers. And damned if Americans didn't lead the list. We produced more wealth per worker last year, at $63,885. We smoked the second place finisher, with the Irish coming in at a measly $55,986.
Interesting, this is not getting the same coverage as this bit of garbage news:Average American worker goofs off 2.09 hours a day.
So we're much better at flogging ourselves for imaginary sins than realizing the true state of things: WE SUCK AT STICKING IT TO THE MAN.
