Who are all these people in your (government’s) workplace?

Fondue Fribourger StübliIt was either the Mr. Rogers approach or the Seinfeld approach. In the end, I chose Jerry to add some levity to what is otherwise going to be a very boring blog post.

You’ve been warned.

According this report released last month from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the complexion of the federal workforce really isn’t changing all the much. In FY 2010, there were over 2.8 million people employed by the federal government, of whom 56% were men and 44% were women. Of that total:

65.4% were White,
17.9% were Black or African American,
7.9% were Hispanic or Latino,
5.9% were Asian,
1.6% were American Indian or Alaska Native,
.08% were persons of two or more races, and
.04% were Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.

Additionally, the participation rate of individuals with targeted disabilities remained at 0.88%. Targeted disabilities include deafness, blindness, missing extremities, partial or complete paralysis, convulsive disorders, intellectual disabilities, mental illness, and distortion of the limb and/or spine.

In hindsight, I probably should have cut this post after the first paragraph and called it a day. Oh well. Don’t discriminate and here’s Jerry and Kenny talking about Ovaltine.
