Government workers have an unemployment rate of 4.4 percent, which is 66 percent better than the national unemployment rate of 7.3 percent, according to the latest data produced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
The unemployment rate increased in October compared to September, when it was 3.9 percent, but improved overall since its peak in 2013 when it stood at 5.3 percent in July.
Since Obama has entered office, the unemployment rate for government workers has changed little. The average unemployment rate for government workers in 2009 stood at 3.6 percent, and it has risen to 4.4 percent since then.
