Dick Cheney reveals the employment news

Only thirteen employed people left in America, Bureau of Labor Statistics has two of them.

Washington, DC -- Employment grew at a robust 12% in the last quarter as the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the Department of Labor announced its latest findings today. The highlight of the increase was in the fast food sector, as an illegal undocumented Mexican worker was hired for three hours last month by the El Paso McDonald's to clean the floor of the cooking area.

"This just exemplifies that service sector is the main place where job growth will be," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Dick Cheney. In a cost cutting move, Mr. Cheney now holds all cabinet posts except President, and thereby heads all offices of the executive branch.

"I heartily urge all Americans to follow the lead of Jose in El Paso, and forge ahead with education and training in the service sector. His outstanding contribution of the American economy is why the labor picture is so bright today," Mr. Cheney said.
