Your numbers concerning "the average American Worker" are woefully skewed. I work a "9-5" job, like most American workers. I average 50 hours+ per week. That's one reason unemployment remains high: companies are asking their workers to do more, and with the job market so bad (I could get into why, but trying to illustrate Obummer's woeful policies would fly right over your head) workers will continue to put in the extra time. Hence, there is less of a need for more workers as the ones working are both more efficient and more effective.
