That’s my friend Jazz Shaw on Twitter yesterday, and it made me whip out my handy-dandy VodkaPundit TruDigit Calculator™. Total private sector employment in the US this month is estimated to be 115,686,000. That’s 89.5 hours per worker. We’re losing 2.5 weeks out of each and every working year. Figure two weeks of vacation, and that’s 5% of our productivity whacked right off the top.

Just to fill out the goddamn forms.

I tweeted those numbers back to Jazz who said back to me, “Talking to AT&T guys. They employ a literal ARMY of people just to try to comply with shifting regs.” Think about that, next time you see how much your phone service costs.

Let. It. Burn.
