Tomorrow, we celebrate the American work force. Though times are tough and unemployment continues to play a part in our economic situation, there are plenty of Americans who work hard every day and contribute to the national interest.

CreditDonkey has created this fun infographic that contains some information about the current American workforce.

Some interesting takeaways from the stats:

  • There are over three times as many registered nurses as there are social workers.
  • There are about as many casino workers as there are aerospace engineers.
  • 5.9 million people reportedly work from home.
  • The unemployment rate for college grads is less than half the national average at 4.3%.
  • 284,000 people work two full time jobs.  That’s a lot of hours.
  • The average length per commute in America is 25.5 minutes.

Enjoy your weekend and honor our workforce with fun and relaxation. If you’re still trying to figure out your food situation for tomorrow, check out our Labor Day Food & Drink Twitter guide.
