Dishwashers, waiters and bartenders are in luck! The jobs growth in this category grew according to the jobs report out yesterday. Record numbers…

NEW YORK – Buried within the jobs report Friday that showed the official unemployment number has risen again to 5 percent was the discouraging news that while waiters and bartenders have risen to record numbers, the drop in higher-paying manufacturing jobs was the worst since 2009.

As has been the case for virtually every month in the much-hyped Obama “economic recovery,” just about every worker laid off in manufacturing could find a job as a waiter or bartender.

The “food services and drinking places” category – waiters, bartenders and minimum-wage line cooks – rose again to a new record high of 11,307,000 workers, an increase of 25,000 in the month, offsetting virtually all lost manufacturing jobs, pointed out.

On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics also reported the number of foreign-born people employed in the United States hit a record high in March, registering a total of 25,741,000, an increase of 246,000 over the previous high recorded in November.
