The federal government is looking to hire more than 3,000 new employees this year, but a recent report suggests the number of jobs in the public sector is not what it used to be.
Federal government employment was at an all-time high in 2013 before the Great Recession hit, with nearly 6 million jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In 2014, federal government employment had fallen to an all time low of about 4.3 million.
But that year the government also posted an increase in job postings.
It now has about 3.3 jobs for every 100 Americans.
But even if you exclude those postings, the federal government has a lot of empty positions, according a new report by the Economic Policy Institute.
The report finds that government employment grew by more than 13 million jobs between 2005 and 2018, a period during which the federal workforce shrank by more then 12 million people.
That year, the number fell to 6.9 million.
The government added more than 20 million jobs during that time, but the economy has struggled to recover from that recession.
The federal job market is still relatively strong, with the economy growing by about 2.9 percent annually, according the EPI.
The EPI report found that the federal jobless rate has declined since the recession, which means people are not discouraged from looking for work.
The Federal Reserve’s recent report says the federal economy is in a “precarious” state.
The unemployment rate for the US is 8.6 percent.
But the EPP report said the jobless recovery in the past few years is mostly due to a rebound in the job market.
In 2016, more than 4 million people lost their jobs.
The recovery is “not sustainable,” the report said.
That recovery is partly due to the fact that people are taking on more responsibility for their own economic well-being.
But many Americans are still finding it difficult to get a job.
One in four Americans are now out of the workforce.
The economy has also suffered from the decline of manufacturing, which is the backbone of the economy.
The manufacturing sector lost more than 25,000 manufacturing jobs between January 2015 and December 2017.
The number of manufacturing jobs in manufacturing was down more than 21,000 jobs between 2015 and 2016, according an analysis by the Bureau for Economic Analysis.
But a majority of manufacturing employment in 2017 and 2018 were in non-manufacturing jobs, which are the most common jobs in most industries.
The most common job lost during that period was the secretary of the interior, according EPI’s report.
The Department of Defense has also seen a drop in jobs over the past several years.
But in 2017, there were nearly 14,000 fewer active duty military personnel in the military, according Defense Department figures.
That includes active duty personnel who are currently deployed overseas.
In 2017, the total number of active duty troops was 1.3 percent lower than in 2016, but active duty manpower increased by about 7,000.
The decline in active duty numbers is due to people retiring early.
Many retirees are still looking for jobs, and they are willing to accept the pay and benefits of that work.
