Under the leadership of President Donald Trump, we are witnessing the Incredible Shrinking Federal Government. While the President may not create and delete agencies, that is the job of Congress, he does have control of the Federal workforce. As you read through this article you can see by actual numbers what has happened to the workforce. there is a bit of humor in there as well.
As Written By Ed Straker for the American Thinker:
While President Trump can’t shrink the size of government without Congress, he can shrink the size of the federal workforce, and he has, dramatically. After one year in office, the Treasury Department has 7.5% fewer employees. The Department of Education (which doesn’t educate a single child) is 4.8% smaller. The Department of Labor (without a single laborer) is down 4.6%. The Department of State, which must do something, but I can’t figure out what, has 3.8% fewer employees.
